Environmental health law is a wide-ranging, detailed and complex body of law within the UK. Bassett's Environmental Health Procedures is an established and essential reference source which provides an accessible entry into enforcement and administrative procedures for environmental health. The main legal procedures used in the environmental health field are presented as flow charts supported by explanatory text.

This ninth edition refines the structure introduced in the eighth edition, with each chapter addressing a single topic. It has introduced the titles of the corresponding legislation in Scotland and Northern Ireland where there is such legislation. The book has been updated throughout to reflect new practices, legislation and statutory guidance. Specifically, the ninth edition contains new content on antisocial behaviour and significant updates to sections on:

    • Enforcement and administration

    • Environmental protection

    • Food safety

    • Housing

    • Public health.

    Environmental health officers/practitioners and students will find this book invaluable. It will also be an essential reference for all those whose responsibilities demand they keep abreast of current environmental health practices.

    Bill Bassett authored the first seven editions of Environmental Health Procedures, the first of which appeared in 1983. His dedication to navigating and clarifying the relevant regulations and laws in this book has aided countless environmental health practitioners in the UK and beyond. Bill passed the baton to Tim Deveaux in 2013, but remained on hand to help both the new author and the publisher throughout. The ninth edition continues in the spirit of Bill's classic book, and is the second to be named after him. Bill sadly died in 2017 and his legacy remains a testament to a leading, visionary and dedicated environmental health practitioner.

    Tim Deveaux is an independent environmental health practitioner with 36 years of public sector experience in a wide range of areas in environmental health and sustainability. His experience includes housing, drainage, food safety, health and safety, air pollution and noise, infectious disease control, developing and implementing strategies to change behaviour, and protecting the environment and human health, particularly in planning for, and implementing, climate change and sustainability solutions.
