Transposition of the 2014 amendments to the EU’s EIA Directive into UK Practice

IEMA has been actively involved in development of the European Union’s EIA Directive since 2009, when members provided evidence to the European Commission’s research that led to the effectiveness review produced in that year. In 2012, IEMA was the only professional body referenced in the Commission’s initial proposal to amend the Directive and we actively participated in influencing the 2014 amendment.

Alongside this IEMA has been working over the past five years to prepare UK practitioners for the new requirements introduced by the May 2017 transposition. Through 2016 and into 2017, IEMA members actively engaged with all six of the UK Government consultations on the transposition.

We are now focussed on providing access to our EIA Transposition resources to ensure IEMA members are well briefed, prepared and supported in delivering effective EIA to enable quality development across the UK.

IEMA members can log in and access IEMA’s EIA Transposition Consultation Responses, Presentations, Webinars and Guidance here.
