Environmental Law (Notes for the User)

Germany's environmental legislation is very extensive and is continually being updated. We hope, therefore, that users of our foreign language webpages will appreciate that there is only a limited number of foreign language translations of Ordinances and Acts available either in the Internet or as a printed version.

Where they are available, the English texts of Acts can be found under the different environmental policy sectors, e.g. waste management, water management, renewable energy.

Only the German version of the texts is legally binding.
