• Financial Provision for Environmental Liabilities – Practical Guide

    This practical guide is intended as a reference document for regulators. It does not prescribe what a regulator should do.

In this way, it should contribute to improved protection of the environment and the public purse, promote compliance with the polluter pays principle and encourage operator investment in pollution prevention. The guide identifies issues to consider in the decision-making process when assessing financial provision, and assists regulators and other users in finding successful solutions. It also highlights the importance of ongoing maintenance and monitoring of financial provision to ensure successful delivery of that financial provision when required and provides examples of usage and guidance internationally.
