BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

U.K. consults on hazardous substances


LONDON—The Department for Environment, Food And Rural Affairs in the United Kingdom has published proposals for dealing with hazardous substances in surface waters.

The DEFRA consultation follows publication in July of a European Commission proposal for a new "daughter directive" to the Water Framework Directive on priority substances.

The proposed daughter directive introduces environmental quality standards for more than 30 priority substances. It also proposes additional reporting requirements, including an inventory of emissions, discharges and losses of priority substances.

DEFRA said that it was particularly keen to seek views on the proposals from the chemicals, ports, water and agricultural sectors.
