Lecture on inspection by authorities
On 24st February, 2014, together with Peter van Loo of the Deltalinqs organisation, Floortje Groendijk gave a lecture for 54 students of the Erasmus University, at the Port of Rotterdam. The lecture was part of the Port Day during the Meesterweek, the largest law student convention in the Benelux.
Companies in the port of Rotterdam are frequently confronted with inspections by the authorities for the purpose of personal and environmental safety. The authorities operate preventatively, but often retrospectively as well. Their actions can be based on administrative or law. Sometimes however, the basis for these actions is not immediately clear . Floortje commented on the tension between administrative and criminal law.
