Abstract:     
On 25 September 2014, Singapore’s new Transboundary Haze Pollution Act came into operation. The Act is a dramatic piece of legislation that creates extra-territorial liability for entities engaging in setting fires abroad that cause transboundary smoke or "haze" pollution in Singapore. The impetus for the Act’s enactment can be traced to the serious haze pollution that hit Singapore in June 2013.
