Rules of Procedure for Environmental Cases

Posted by lexforiphilippines on June 7, 2010

On 13 April 2010, the Supreme Court issued the Rules of Procedure for Environmental Cases (A.M. No. 09-6-8-SC) to protect the people’s constitutional right to a balanced and healthful ecology.  The Rules, which took effect on 29 April 2010, will govern the procedure in civil, criminal and special civil actions involving enforcement or violations of environmental laws such as the Revised Forestry Code, the Water Code, the Philippine Mining Act, the Indigenous Peoples Rights Act, the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act.
