The Ministry of Justice on February 28, 2013 deposited a regulation which, in essence, delays any amendments to the Environmental Management Act caused by the passing of the new Limitation Act (set to come into force on June 1, 2013). Critically, the limitations for the remediation costs recovery regime under the new Limitations Act will not be exempted and will be affected by the provisions of the new Limitations Act. We are in the process of updating our environmental-focused Limitation Act ALERT, to take into account this change.
