Aggravating factors from an environmental perspective:

If the Verifying Body considers there to be a particular degree of complexity in the production with a potential impact on the environment, it may increase the number of verification days established  by 50% due to the presence of an “aggravating” factor.  

The aggravating factors that fall under this provision and that justify the application of the above criteria refer to:

  • sensitive film locations, such as protected natural areas or areas of a particular value;
  • activities carried out on-set with a significant impact on the environment (e.g. explosions, accidents, spills, etc.).
