Dyeing and paper companies will have to test soils from their facilities.

Contamination assessment will become mandatory, according to a decree-law that the Government is finalizing. This novelty is in the draft of a new regime for the prevention of soil contamination, which the Government is finalizing. In the most serious cases, operators will have to submit plans to correct the detected problems. It is the first time that Portugal will have a law of this type.

Susana Loureiro, Researcher at DBIO / CESAM and specialist in applied ecology, sees "with very good eyes" the proposal in which the Government is working. "Finally there will be a document of this type in Portugal", she emphasizes. In the preamble of the diploma, the Ministry of the Environment presents it as complementary to the determinations that already constitute the Basic Law of the Public Policy of Soils.
