More than ever before the work of the environmental health professional is subject to scrutiny, particularly in the area of the law. Environmental Health Officers must have a fundamental understanding of the law and how it is implemented.

Legal Competence in Environmental Health assists the environmental health professional in understanding the operation of English law and navigating through some of its complexities. It covers those aspects of the work for the environmental health professional which are regulated by legal principles but not found in a single statute. This book is not an exposition of all Environmental Health law, it is designed to indicate how that law may be applied, emphasising those skills and attributes which are essential if the theory of law is to be put into professional practice.

It examines powers of environmental health professionals; offers practical advice on legal options available to environmental health professionals; illustrated with examples of standard forms.
