Environmental Protection Act 1990 - Part IIA Contaminated Land: statutory guidance edition 2

This document promulgates revised statutory guidance for the operation of the contaminated land regime following implementation of the Contaminated Land (Scotland) Regulations 2005. It replaces the earlier 2000 version.

General Provisions

5 Regulation 1 contains the usual provisions on citation and references. Any reference to a numbered "section" in this guide refers to that section in Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

6 Since the primary legislation applies to the whole of Great Britain, regulation 1 specifically provides that these regulations apply only to Scotland. The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the National Assembly for Wales are responsible for any provisions that are made for England or Wales.
