Objective

This seminar  will analyse practical experience with the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive in the EU. The focus will be on the scope and procedure of EIA, the requirements to streamline environmental reporting procedures, the quality control and monitoring of EIA, as well as its interaction with other forms of assessment in EU environmental policy.  

The benefits of enhanced public participation in decision-making will be discussed in light of the role of the reasoned conclusion. As new environmental issues – such as climate change, energy, risk of accident and disasters and biodiversity protection – have become more important in policy-making, the seminar will explore ways to deal effectively with these impending challenges.

Key topics

  • Place of EIA in decision-making
  • EIA procedure and other forms of assessment (Habitats Directive and SEA)
  • Quality control mechanisms
  • New requirements of EIA reports
  • The screening process (Annexes II.A and III)
  • Public participation under the EIA Directive
  • EIA in a transboundary context

Who should attend?

Legal practitioners, in-house counsel, regulatory authorities and public administration in the field of environmental law.
