EIA - EU

The Environmental Impact Assessment Directive 2014/53/EU will, from May 2017, replace EIA Directive 2011/92/EU .

The new Directive requires that EIAs consider a wider range of effects including those on the local population, human health and biodiversity.

EIAs must also consider expected effects arising from the vulnerability of the project to major accidents and disasters.

Developers will be required to prepare further information in screening for projects under Annex II.

Future EIA reports must also include additional information specified by Annex IV.
