Chapter Summary

The 2002 Law on the Protection of the Environment provides that in cases where the siting of buildings, installations and other objects affects the lawful interests of individuals, the decision is adopted by taking into consideration the result of the referendum held in the respective area. The Law provides that there are three kinds of standards, i.e. chemical, physical and biological. Ecological review is intended to screen such activities and prevent excessive harm to the environment. In the review, the technical-economic justification (TEO) containing the environmental impact assessment and the plans for the given economic activities are examined. Individuals and social organisations are entitled to participate in the decision-making on matters which affect the interests of the inhabitants and are related to the taking away of land for social and state needs. In 1988, the USSR State Committee on the Protection of the Environment was founded as a separate agency.
