Over the last few years several EU policy developments, including new and revised Directives, have been initiated, which could potentially have a significant
impact on contaminated land management in the future. The “Van de Walle-case” is an example of how Directives can influence dramatically the way that contaminated
land is dealt with. NICOLE members have highlighted the importance of being informed and being able to contribute to these developments for their organisations.
As a consequence this workshop was initiated with the following objectives
• to inform and explain to the participants of the workshop what a range of existing and proposed EC Directives might mean to the management of contaminated
• To create an opportunity for dialogue between stakeholders and regulators.
