There appears to be a growing demand for a coherent system of liability for environmental damage at Community level. This paper tracks the thinking of the Community on this issue and considers whether any such system is justifiable, together with some of the main substantive problems in designing such a system. The difficult issues of 'damage from the past' and retrospective liability are also addressed.
