Law of 6 November 2008 laying down rules on a system of authorisation with regard to activities affecting the physical environment and on the maintenance of arrangements in the area of physical living environment (General provisions Act) environmental law)

We Beatrix, at the grace of God, Queen of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, etc. etc. etc.

All of them, who will see or hear these, saluut! do know:

In this regard, we have taken into consideration that a large number of different systems exist in the authorisations of administrative bodies, which are required for the provision of activities that affect the physical environment, and that the it is desirable to combine those systems as far as possible so that a coherent assessment of such activities on the relevant aspects is possible in a single procedure leading to a single decision; whereas it is necessary to do so in view of this new system to regulate enforcement and that it is appropriate to make use of that opportunity to the administrative enforcement of arrangements with regard to the physical environment, in so far as not generally governed by administrative law, to standardize and to apply the same law;

In this way, we, the Council of State, and with the mean consultations of the States-General, have been well-regarded and understood to be right and to be understood by the following:
