  11. Converging regulatory landscape: how the EU Green Deal and Sustainable Chemicals Strategy impact Enforcement & Scope

    With the current “all breaks released” regulatory discussions in the EU, pressure on the market place increases. The verdict of “no data no market” becomes even emphasized by the introduction of new criteria in the expected review of the “Directive 2008/99/EC on the protection of the environment through criminal law”.

    The Directive stipulates criminalization of serious violations of 72 environmental pieces of legislation in the environmental field and requires effective, proportionate and dissuasive sanctions. This in combination with the EU Market Surveillance Directive and the role of the to be established Chemical Audit Agency, the Refit activities around the EU Environmental Liability Directive, and last but not least EU Taxonomy makes companies worry about how to address the challenges. This speech seeks to exemplify the scope of what is happening.
