Environmental Liability Act adopted
An Act on Environmental Liability was proclaimed by the President of Estonia, in line with the requirements of Directive 2004/35/EC. The new piece of legislation lays down the main principles to be followed in the event of an environmental damage. It will nonetheless only apply to cases of significant consequences: the remaining will remain governed by the rules on financial compensation.
