Environment Agency Investigations
The Environment Agency
Within the United Kingdom, the Environment Agency (the "EA") are tasked with ensuring that businesses and companies act in compliance with environment legislation. Due to the current political landscape, environmental law is subject to rapid changes and amendments.
If you or your business breach the strict legal framework provided by UK legislation you may be subject to an investigation by the EA.
In order to minimise non-compliance, the EA have draconian powers of enforcement. Details of the EA's powers can be found on our FAQ page, however it is key to note that an investigation for a breach can potentially lead to prosecution.
