Standards and Thresholds in German Environmental Law

  • Eike Albrecht

Abstract

This chapter aims to discuss the German practice of environmental regulation, in particular setting environmental standards and thresholds. In almost all fields in German Environmental Law, the use of standards and thresholds is commonly practiced. Therefore a selection is necessary, and the topic will be discussed with particular reference to the more European- influenced Emission Control Law and the typical national sector of Soil Protection Law.
