Abstract

La presente Ley regula la responsabilidad ambiental que nace de los daños ocasionados al ambiente, así como la reparación y compensación de dichos daños cuando sea exigible a través de los procesos judiciales federales, los mecanismos alternativos de solución de controversias, los procedimientos administrativos y aquellos que correspondan a la comisión de delitos contra el ambiente y la gestión ambiental. Se establece como principio general que el régimen de responsabilidad ambiental reconoce que el daño ocasionado al ambiente es independiente del daño patrimonial sufrido por los propietarios de los elementos y recursos naturales. Asimismo la Ley reconoce que el desarrollo nacional sustentable debe considerar los valores económicos, sociales y ambientales. Por otro lado, la Ley reforma, adiciona y deroga diversas disposiciones de la Ley General del Equilibrio Ecológico y la Protección al Ambiente, de la Ley General de Vida Silvestre, de la Ley General para la Prevención y Gestión Integral de los Residuos, de la Ley General de Desarrollo Forestal Sustentable, de la Ley de Aguas Nacionales, del Código Penal Federal, de la Ley de Navegación y Comercio Marítimos y de la Ley General de Bienes Nacionales.
