Abstract

As regards the research methodology, this paper used the comparative method between the current legislation in force in the Member States of the European Union on the regulated standards for the content of heavy metals in soil.

As we can see, the legislative regulations vary from country to country, and in Romania, the legislation is the most stringent in terms of Pb content in soil, compared to the other EU Member States. Finland imposes even higher restrictions for Cd and Zn content. Dutch legislation is more permissive for essential metals than other EU Member States.
