Drystone Chambers Webinar: Investigation, enforcement and prosecution under the Environmental Protection Act 1990
8 April 2022
Investigation, enforcement and prosecution under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 ("EPA"): up-to-date guidance for local authorities
Presenters: Andrew Price and Richard Davies
This session aims both to provide a refresher/updater for those who investigate, enforce and prosecute EPA offences but want to brush up their knowledge, and to provide a sound overview for those who are new to the subject.
We will explore evidence gathering, presentation, types of enforcement action, how to prepare as the Prosecuting agency and what the likely penalties and orders will be.
The talk will cover the key legislation, recent case law, evidential matters, procedural issues and costs.
