More than ever before the work of the environmental health professional is subject to scrutiny, particularly in the area of the law. Environmental Health Officers must have a fundamental understanding of the law and how it is implemented. Legal Competence in Environmental Health assists the environmental health professional in understanding the operation of English law and navigating through some of its complexities. It covers those aspects of the work for the environmental health professional which are regulated by legal principles but not found in a single statute. This book is not an exposition of all Environmental Health law, it is designed to indicate how that law may be applied, emphasising those skills and attributes which are essential if the theory of law is to be put into professional practice.

International initiatives, such as Agenda 21, have led to local action on the environment and health. These local initiatives seek to improve the health and quality of life of the local population by involving the community in decision-making and by integrating social, economic and environmental concerns into policy and action. In the WHO European Region, agreements reached at Region-wide ministerial conferences led to the development of national environmental health action plans (NEHAPs), which in turn has created a framework for the development of local environmental health action plans (LEHAPs). This book provides an analysis of existing local planning processes and initiatives in the WHO European Region, identifies their common features, and describes how they interrelate with and support NEHAPs. Based on a two-year project carried out in the eastern half of the Region, this book also provides guidance and options for the development of LEHAPs that give the levels of flexibility necessary to ensure that a bottom-up planning process can occur. This publication addresses both local and national policy-makers and professionals in the environmental, health and other sectors. It provides valuable reading for anyone interested in integrated action to improve and protect the environment and health.

During recent decades the somatic mutation theory for the causation of cancer has held sway. The influence of environmental factors in the aetiology of cancer has become a matter of debate between those who maintain that it is largely a degenerative phenomenon and other voices who increasingly support the hypothesis that environmental factors predominate. An examination of some aspects of this debate is the prime purpose of this book. The increasing incidence of cancer across many parts of the world, particularly in children, has happened over a very short period of time in evolutionary terms. One can infer that it is connected to changes in the environment and/or our lifestyles. A major counter-argument to this contention is that rising cancer incidence is mainly because the average life expectancy has increased.These pages contain a number of chapters from specialists in the field who consider, from a number of different perspectives, the currently available evidence that supports the environmental cancer,aetiology hypothesis. This constitutes the first part of the book. In the second part of the book, an examination of the policy implications of accepting that the cancer epidemic may essentially be preventable is presented. This will pose some difficult problems for politicians and decision-makers, who will have to consider adopting policies that may damage the economy in the short term in order to reap health benefits which will only become apparent several decades in the future.

For some, a protectionist policy underlies most environmental measures. Lawyers working in the area of fundamental freedoms are very accustomed to discussing all issues within a free market framework and therefore often come to market-friendly decisions. Similarly, while environmental law has taken on a renewed intensity at European level, the tendency has been to analyse the subject rather narrowly, and studies fail to address the impact of environmental law on market integration. Written by one of the foremost experts in the area, the book challenges current thought and re-assesses the rules of economic integration within an environmental framework. In so doing, it bridges the gap between environmental and trade law and provides a systematic, robust, and practically workable analytical framework of the conflicts opposing rapidly evolving environmental and climate change measures and internal market as well as competition rules. The book is divided into three parts, beginning with a systematic and in-depth analysis of the key Treaty provisions regarding environmental protection, as well as an overview of secondary environmental law. Part two addresses the compatibility of EU and national environmental protection measures with the provisions of the TFEU on the free movement of goods and services, and the freedom of establishment. Part three examines the compatibility of environmental protection measures with treaty provisions on the freedom of competition and State aids. The book also includes discussion of all major cases handed down by the Court of Justice, highlighting the real impact of the conflicts.
