  • Provisión financiera para responsabilidades medioambientales - Guía práctica

    Esta guía práctica pretende ser un documento de referencia para los reguladores. No prescribe lo que debe hacer un regulador. Su objetivo es proporcionar información para ayudar a los reguladores a tomar mejores decisiones sobre la provisión financiera de las obligaciones y responsabilidades medioambientales. De este modo, debería contribuir a mejorar la protección del medio ambiente y del erario público, promover el cumplimiento del principio de que quien contamina paga y fomentar la inversión de los operadores en la prevención de la contaminación. La guía señala las cuestiones que deben tenerse en cuenta en el proceso de toma de decisiones al evaluar la provisión financiera, y ayuda a los reguladores y otros usuarios a encontrar soluciones satisfactorias. También subraya la importancia del mantenimiento y la supervisión continuos de la provisión financiera para garantizar el éxito de esa provisión financiera cuando se requiera y proporciona ejemplos de uso y orientación a nivel internacional.

  • Guidance compliance: Company Management System (CMS) assistance

    Traditional supervision has several shortcomings. Although certain regulatees need a deterrent approach, most regulatees are willing to comply to public regulations. Some of them, especially the bigger regulated organizations, are responsive to new forms of regulation.
