The EIA Quality Mark is a scheme operated by IEMA that allows organisations (both developers and consultancies) that lead the co-ordination of statutory EIAs in the UK to make a commitment to excellence in their EIA activities and have this commitment independently reviewed. The EIA Quality Mark is a voluntary scheme, with organisations free to choose whether they are ready to operate to its seven EIA Commitments.
The EIA Quality Mark registrants adhere to seven key commitments. These commitments underpin and keep the high standard of the scheme.
By choosing a consultancy registered to the EIA Quality Mark you know that they are not only committed to delivering you a quality product, but that their EIA activities have also been independently reviewed by IEMA. CLICK HERE for a list of EIA Quality Mark Registrants. The EIA Quality Mark Registrant list is made up of 40 of the UK’s leading consultancies and the scheme’s first developer – The Environment Agency’s National Environmental Assessment Service (NEAS). All registrants have committed to excellence in their EIA activities and are proud to have gained membership of the scheme.
IEMA’s EIA Quality Mark scheme is open to organisations that co-ordinate (take the lead on) statutory UK Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and lead production of the associated Environmental Statements (ES). As such both developers and consultancies can apply to become registered with the scheme. CLICK HERE for more information.
