transposition of Council Directive 90/313/EEC of 7 June 1990 on the
freedom of access to information on the environment in Gibraltar.
Legal Notice No. 143 of 1992, Gibraltar Gazette No. 2,697 of 12/11/1992
Legal Notices Second Supplement.
Environmental information Directive has been transposed in Gibraltar by
the Public Health (Freedom of Access to Information on the Environment)
Rules 1992, an order made by the Governor of Gibraltar which came
into effect on the 1st November 1992. This order is extremely
interesting since it sticks very closely to the wording of the 1990
Directive, probably in an effort to avoid an erroneous transposition.
It is also a very hard to find documen since even if
ithas been published in the Gibraltar Gazette: 1) the British Library
has a 6 month gap in its collections around this date (!), and 2)
Gibraltar's Environmental Agency were unable to provide me with a copy.
However, I was able to find it at the Lincoln Inn's library and I have
reproduced it o this website in order to help other reseachers. To
