(1) On the basis of article 6, § 1, II of the special act regarding the reform of the institutions of August 8th, 1980, the regional bodies are competent for most aspects regarding the environment and the water policy. The federal state is only competent to establish the product standards and the protection against ionising radiation, including radioactive wastes. As a consequence, there are separate regulatory instruments in the Flemish region, the Brussels-Capital region and the Walloon region.
