Overview

Until now EU law has prevented significant differences between Scottish and English legislation, however divergence in key areas of regulation including waste, water and permitting could accelerate significantly outside the constraints of the EU, argues Anne Johnstone at this not-to-be-missed event.

Chair of the UK Environmental Law Association (UKELA), Anne will give an authoritative overview of the flurry of activity at UK and Scottish Government level with only months to go before the UK is due to exit the EU including:

  • European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018
  • European Union (Legal Continuity)(Scotland) Bill 2018
  • Proposed Environmental Principles and Governance Bill Consultation
  • Report on Environmental Governance in Scotland after EU withdrawal (Scottish Government)

All of this against a backdrop of change in environmental regulation in Scotland driven by the Regulatory Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 which has given the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) new powers explained in their One Planet Prosperity strategy.

Anne's lecture will be immediately preceded by a short AGM for the Edinburgh Area Branch of ICE Scotland.

Registration and refreshments from 5.45pm for a 6.15pm start.
