CIEH consultation responses

As part of its mission to maintain, enhance and promote improvements in environmental and public health, the CIEH responds to many consultation documents from government and other sources. Increasingly these require respondents to complete an online questionnaire but occasionally there is still often the opportunity to submit a written response. Copies of some of our written responses can be found below.

Details of many consultation documents relevant to environmental health are published in the monthly print edition of EHN and in some of our specialist electronic bulletins. You can also sign up to receive email alerts about Government consultation documents on the GOV.UK website. 

If you are a CIEH member or you are a non-member working in an environmental health regulatory or related role and you have any thoughts on a particular consultation, we would be happy to hear from you. Comments can be emailed to the CIEH Policy Team.  

NB. Comments on consultations relating exclusively to Wales or Northern Ireland should be sent to our Wales or Northern Ireland offices.
