This article provides, based on legal perspectives, an opinion on how watchdogs - such as whistle blowers and Environmental non-governmental organisations can contribute to a safe environment. Given the complexity and width of environmental legislation, it is impossible for governmental authorities to check all. Adequate and balanced legal frameworks are necessary to enable civil watchdogs to check compliance with environmental law.
