Air Pollution

Air quality standards in the environmental law in Israel are determined through "strabismus" to what is happening in Europe (applicable documents according to IPPC Directive, the provisions of the German -T.A.Luft) and United States (US Clean Air Act). Early familiarity with foreign standards and current trends in this area are the benefits we offer you. 

In 2008 passed the Clean Air Act, which came into effect starting in 2011. This law is one of the most complex and complicated laws enacted to date in Israel, and pursuant thereto emerged a wide range of regulations and directives, which must be acknowledged and recognized in order to comply with the legal requirements and cope with the demands of the Ministry of Environment. 

In the event of a breach of the law's provisions, the Clean Air Act imposes administrative liability in the form of financial sanctions and criminal liability on the corporation and its managers as well as criminal liability on directors. We advise corporations, directors and managing officers of the Company towards a proper classification of their company's environmental issues in line with the law's requirements, and in the preparation phase of the application for the work permit (including the reference to legal aspects such as trade secret protection, counseling to reduce fees, etc.). Further on, if a monetary sanction has been imposed on the Company or its directors, we can represent your side in the administrative proceedings in litigations to revocate or reduce the amount of monetary sanctions. If criminal charges were filed against the corporation and its managers, we will prepare you to for the administrative procedures of hearings and the questionings under caution and, if necessary, we have wide knowledge and rich experience in providing legal representation in the complex criminal proceedings.
