There have been identified the features distinguishing the named category from other varieties of legal liability, particularly from environmental and legal liability. Environmental and legal liability is an independent form of liability being applied also for transport offenses, which, together with others, forms such an institution of law as legal liability in the field of environmental protection. The researchers have made an attempt to classify varieties of administrative liability for environmental offenses.
