This Law lays down several amendments and addenda to Law No. 8934 on environmental protection. In particular, it adds new definitions such as “integrated environmental permit”, “accident”, “environmental threat”, “environmental risk” , “climate change”, “clean development mechanisms”. The Law establishes the environmental cadastre under the Agency of Environment and Forestry to identify the pollution and the damages of the environment and its elements. The cadastre is the database of all the quantitative and qualitative indicators, pollution sources and the polluted areas. At the national level the cadastre is administered by the Agency of Forests and Environment while, at local level, by the regional environment agencies.
