Denmark to offer more regulatory flexibility

The Danish government has issued guidelines for "differentiated environmental supervision" of businesses with effect from the new year. The aim is to ease regulatory burdens on firms that demonstrate environmental responsibility. Criteria can include a good legal compliance record or running Emas or ISO 14001-certified environmental management systems. Enterprises will be graded into three categories. The highest-ranking will undergo few spot-checks and perhaps have formal inspection only once every third year. The lowest will be subject to virtually continuous monitoring. Annual results will be published. See press release.
