As the country aims to deal with COVID-19, all businesses find themselves facing challenges. Amongst these challenges is the question of the impact on environmental compliance in addressing the need to prioritise the health of their staff, dealing with staff shortages or implementing changes to operations. In addressing these challenges, a well-produced action plan and appropriate engagement with the relevant regulator is important.

 Within this publication, we explore the implications of these challenges and address:

  • How are the regulators responding?
  • What issues of environmental compliance might arise?
  • What practical steps can be taken?
