What does the Environmental Legislation Say?
Before looking for the two occupations in the COR, it is necessary to identify in the existing environmental legislation the mandatory appointment of persons to manage the environmental problems of the companies.
The specific duties of the environmental officer appeared mainly due to the requirement provided in the GEO. no. 195/2005 on environmental protection, by which legal entities that carry out activities with a significant impact on the environment organize their own specialized structures for environmental protection. According to this requirement, the companies that hold environmental authorization and are considered, through the prism of the activities carried out, to have a significant impact on the environment are mainly targeted.
Another legislative request can be found in Law no. 211 of 2011 regarding the waste regime, this time addressed to all waste generators, regardless of activity, capacity, possession or not of the environmental authorization and which mentions the fact that “the holders/producers of waste legal entities, traders, as well as economic operators, have the obligation to designate a person from among its own employees to follow and ensure the fulfillment of the obligations stipulated by this law or to delegate this obligation to a third person”; the appointed persons must be trained in the field of waste management, including hazardous waste, as a result of graduating from specialized courses.
