A law is generally defined as a way of regulating human behaviour. For the purpose of law, the environment is defined along the terms of its physical components including air, water, space, land, plants and wildlife. Environmental law/legislation is that law or legislation which relates primarily to the protection of the whole or part of the physical components of the environment (Bell. 1997). However, laws which relate primarily to the public health or particular groups of individuals such as consumers or workers are covered under public health or occupational health laws. Regulation of environmental protection can be achieved by the use of regulations. Regulation is the application of rules and procedures to achieve a measure of control over the activities of individuals and organisations.
