Environmentally harmful activities

Companies with environmentally harmful activities are subject to complex rules, often derived from European legislation. There are permit requirements, notification requirements or information requirements, depending on the type of activity. We can advise you what kind of regulations are relevant to your activity and which specific duty of care is applicable. In addition, we can assist you in consultations with the public authorities to achieve workable customised regulations. If your permit will be revised – at your request or by the public authorities – you have come to the right place for advice and assistance as well. 

Environmental impact assessment: focus on impact

European environmental regulations set strict requirements for activities that may have an impact on the environment. The environmental impact assessment that is required for certain projects is an example thereof. Our specialists will check whether there is an obligation to provide an environmental impact assessment. We review assessments carefully and assist in meeting the applicable requirements. 

External safety: number one priority

The risks of external safety, for instance in the case of industrial processes or the transport of hazardous substances, should not be underestimated. Identifying these risks and taking the necessary measures is key. At De Haij & Van der Wende, we have the knowledge to support you in these matters, ensuring that external safety gets the attention it deserves.
