Detail of outcome
We received 9 responses to this consultation.
We want to know what you think about proposals to extend the scope of the Environmental Liability Directive into offshore marine waters.
This would bring part of the Offshore Safety Directive (OSD) into law in England and Wales. The OSD aims to reduce the potential for major accidents offshore and improve safety standards. If there is an incident, the polluter will pay and make good the damage. It applies to offshore waters out to the limit of UK jurisdiction (approximately 200 miles).
This is part of a package of measures that are being introduced by DECC to bring the OSD into UK law.
