How to initiate the EIA process

The Project Proponent (PP) 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 24.06.1993, 859/14 of 23.02.1995, 1104/22 of 06.11.1999 and 1108/1 of 29.11.1999. The CEA may provide the PP 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 – BIQ link.). If the project is a prescribed project requiring an EIA/IEE, the CEA will then determine which will be the appropriate Project Approving Agency (PAA) for administering the EIA process. The PAA will direct the PP in preparation of an EIA/IEE report.
If the project is located within the coastal zone, then the PP should contact the Director General, CC&CRMD.  
If the project is located within one mile from the boundary of a National Reserves, the PP should contact the Director General, DWC.
