Liability for environmental damage
Brtnová, Marie ; Stejskal, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Sobotka, Michal (referee)
This diploma thesis aims to analyze the legal regulation of liability for environmental damage in the Czech legal order. Given that the regulation of legal liability for environmental damage in Czech law is highly fragmented, this thesis attempts to give a more comprehensive view of the whole issue. By dividing it into individual chapters, the thesis presents individual aspects of legal liability for environmental damage and systematically offers insight into its issues. In its first part, the thesis focuses on legal liability in environmental protection and compares the individual components of legal environmental liability. In particular, it focuses on legal liability for damage under the Civil Code, where, on the basis of a detailed analysis, it defines the main characteristics that distinguish it from legal liability for environmental damage. The second part of the thesis already deals with the legal regulation of environmental damage. The concept of environmental damage is introduced according to individual laws, with the greatest attention being paid to Act No. 167/2008 Coll., on prevention remedying environmental damage. The application of legal liability for environmental damage through preventive and remedial measures is viewed both by Act No. 167/2008 Coll., on prevention remedying...
Directive on environmental liability with regard to the prevention and remedying of environmental damage and transposition in the Czech legal system
Jelínková, Petra ; Tichý, Luboš (advisor) ; Svoboda, Pavel (referee)
The subject of my master thesis is the EU directive 2004/35 on environmental responsibility, prevention and damage redress, its implementation into the legal order of the Czech Republic and the potential impact of undue transposition of the directive. The first part of my thesis deals with the harmonization need in this area and with the directive itself. Following a brief introduction of the directive, I'm presenting an overview of its basic institutes and their legal form. I'm also making an effort at identifying possible shortcomings of the directive. The basic institutes of the directive include: key principles, the environmental damage itself, operational activity, responsibility mechanisms, financial safeguards and the administrative procedure to impose a preventive or a remedial provisions. The second part of my thesis deals with the theoretical aspects of appropriate implementation, such as the interpretation of the directive, a timely adoption of the transposition provisions, proper projection of the content of the directive, due form of the transposition provisions, the application of EU norms, the equivalence and effectiveness imperative and the internal Czech rules for the implementation of EU norms that have been laid down by the governmental provision Nr. 1304 (methodological directions).

Current information about changes in environmental legislation (Czech, Slovak, EU)
Kolář, Jan ; Matušková, Petra
In the period September 2018 – July 2019, several amendments were made to the legislation of the Czech Republic and Slovakia that may have an impact on operators of hot dip galvanising installations. They are both legal amendments concerning major areas of the environment (air, water, waste) and other relevant legal regulations. On the the other hand, there were no major changes at the level of the European Union that would have an impact on operators of hot dip galvanising installations.

The presented habitat valuation method is an amendment of the original method for evaluation and pricing of habitats in the Czech Republic developed in the Ecological Institute (Seják et al. 2003). The method is based on expert evaluation of habitat types in the Czech Republic using selected parametres expressing biodiversity value of several levels. The monetary valuation is based on restoration costs analysis. The method can be be used for the evaluation and monetary valuation of ecological value of landscape segments with practical use in ecological demage quantification but also for a comparison of several alternatives of landscape restoration projects.
Liability for loss caused to the environment
Hanibal, Josef ; Stejskal, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Damohorský, Milan (referee)
English abstract The subject of my thesis is liability for loss caused to the environment. This is a fairly complex issue in the environmental law, which has developed significantly in recent years and decades, coming under the spotlight of the national, international, and European legislation. The principal aim of this thesis is to present and describe various legal instruments in the field of environmental law, particularly the legal regime of liability for loss caused to the environment in international, European, and national law. This thesis consists of nine chapters in which I analyze various modes of legal liability as a means of protecting the environment. The opening chapter of my work defines the term of legal liability in the field of environmental protection. Then I deal with tort liability in the environmental law, both criminal responsibility and liability for administrative misconducts. Next chapter of my work is devoted to liability for damage to the environment in international law. I focus primarily on the Lugano Convention on Civil Liability for damage resulting from activities dangerous to the environment, which has become an important source of inspiration for further development of a common regime of liability for damage to the environment in European countries. The fourth chapter...

Liability for ecological harm
Nováková, Alexandra ; Stejskal, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Humlíčková, Petra (referee)
! This thesis discusses the issue of liability for environmental damages, which includes (i) public-law liability (in Czech legal framework described as "environmental injury") and (ii) private-law liability. The Act on Environmental Damage transposed the Directive on Environmental Liability (the "Directive"), the aim of which is prevention and remedy of environmental damage. The Act on Environmental Damage is legally binding from August 17, 2008, as lex specialis to the Act on Environment and other Acts on respective environmental components. Although the Act on Environmental Damage is based on the public-law approach, the private-law liability remains unaffected. According to the Act on Environmental Damage, the strict liability is imposed on operators of certain high-risk occupational activities and these operators are obliged to implement preventive and remedial measures and bear associated costs. Furthermore, the operators must provide relevant information on the request of competent public authorities.
