After-treatment measure responsibility under the Swedish Environmental Code
The Swedish Environmental Code was made part of Swedish law on January 1, 1999 and then replaced 15 different laws and regulations in the environmental field. You will find a short résumé of the Code here and the full text here.
One of the most important chapters in the code from the point of view of the general business lawyer is Chapter 10 with the heading “Polluted areas - Responsibility for investigation and after-treatment”. I will try to give some pertinent information about this chapter through a number of posts.
