Abstract
The scope of the present Decree is to confer power upon (mainly local) authorities to propose transactions for simple and frequent ecological offences and thus to provide the authorities with an important instrument to enforce environment legislation. The main reason for transaction is to confront the offender as fast as possible with the consequences of the offending behaviour. Experience with this instrument has been gained by Polder Boards in respect of water pollution offences. The authority of transaction shall be conferred in accordance with the Act Economic Offences to mayors, provincial authorities, inspectors of ministries and other specified central public bodies.
