How to initiate the EIA process

The project proponent first has to find out whether the project proposal falls within the “prescribed project” list by verifying with the CEA or referring to the Government Gazette No. 772/22 of 24.06.93, 859/14 of 23.02.95, 1104/22 of 06.11.99 and 1108/1 of 29.11.99. The CEA may provide the project proponent with a Basic Information Questionnaire (BIQ) to submit essential information of the project in order for CEA to determine the above (The BIQ may be obtained from the EIA Unit of the CEA Head Quarters or the Provincial / District offices of the CEA. It could also be downloaded from the CEA website.). If the project is a prescribed project requiring EIA/IEE, the CEA will then determine which will be the appropriate Project Approving Agency (PAA) for administering the EIA/IEE process. The PAA will guide the project proponent in preparation of an EIA/IEE.

If the project is located within the coastal zone, then the project proponent should contact the Director General, Coastal Conservation Department.

If the project is located within one mile from the boundary of a National Reserves, the project proponent should contact the Director General of Wildlife Conservation.
