Environmental Liability Act

The Environmental Liability Act (UmweltHG), which came into force in 1991, applies in the Federal Republic of Germany. The UmweltHG introduced comprehensive strict liability. This means that the operator of a system is liable for damage to people and property even if he is not at fault. The law stipulates that the operators of certain systems must take care of financial security so that they can meet their legal obligations in the event of damage. However, § 15 UmweltHG provides for a maximum liability limit that is intended to protect companies from economic ruin.
