The government has allowed the Environment Agency access to powers to apply civil penalties, known as ‘Civil Sanctions’ for certain offences. The majority of civil sanctions applied so far are enforcement undertakings, volunteered under the producer responsibility legislation. The primary purpose of the enforcement undertaking is to allow the offender to restore and remediate any environmental damage they have caused. This is a list of cases which the Environment Agency has accepted a civil sanctions enforcement undertaking (EU) for environmental offences.
