Enforcement

Compliance with administrative, environmental and planning law can be enforced by withdrawing an (environmental) permit, by imposing a charge under incremental penalty payments or administrative coercion or by imposing an administrative fine.

Government bodies

Under Dutch administrative law, government bodies have a so-called duty to enforce, meaning that a government body may not refrain from enforcement without good reason. Our lawyers assist both government bodies taking enforcement action and parties against whom an enforcement action is directed.
