Book Now

  • Time: 10.30 - 11.30


To date, the coronavirus (COVID-19) – officially known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) – has been responsible for over 43,000 deaths across the UK and has changed almost every aspect of our lives.

As the lockdown is further relaxed and more businesses prepare to reopen, we are joined again by Julie Barratt, Environmental Health Practitioner, barrister, owner of Julie Barratt Legal Training and legal author, who returns to help us unpick the latest legislation around coronavirus and the new enforcement regulations and powers.

The session will focus on the practicalities of enforcement, whether the enforcement protocols are conducted subject to the guidance, and prosecution decisions where breaches of the legislation are identified. Julie will draw on her vast experience to give a legal view, however please note that we will not be able to give legal advice or delve into any practical applications.

In these unprecedented times it’s more important than ever for CIEH to facilitate these discussions. The webinars will be a call to arms for the profession as well as updating colleagues on the hottest topics.
