What this service is:

Know and understand environmental news, laws, regulations, and policies — in all major industrialized and developing nations, as well as international governmental and nongovernmental organizations.

What it helps you do:

  • Find out about global "green" legislation even before it becomes law — tracking from proposal to enactment, amendment to enforcement.
  • Avoid costly fines for non-compliance with legal provisions, especially in Canada, the European Union, and Mexico.
  • Follow the development of EU directives and regulations, and UN, IMO, and OECD treaties and recommendations. Know what's on the agenda in legislatures, regulatory agencies, and organizations around the world — and be prepared to address the issues that arise.
  • Stay alert to political, economic, and technological factors affecting environmental programs around the world. Be current on crucial developments in international law.
  • Keep informed of enforcement actions and litigation that could affect your interests abroad. Plan ahead to protect your overseas operations.
  • Understand the institutional framework for environmental programs in other countries to better work within them.
  • Locate key agencies in charge of environment and safety laws, regulations, and policies in individual countries and organizations.
  • Access hard-to-find materials from around the world, not otherwise readily available — news, essential documents, expert analysis, and more.
  • Rely on Bloomberg BNA's worldwide network of reporters and correspondents, to gain a vital, current perspective on changing international environment and safety laws and standards.
