EPA publishes Guidelines on information to be contained in Environmental Impact Assessment Reports (EIAR)

The Guidelines on the information to be contained in Environmental Impact Assessment Reports concentrates on the principles and associated practice of preparing EIARs. It is a statutory document that should be regarded by developers, practitioners and CAs – as set out in section 1.1.

The document is organised into three parts to provide guidance on:

1. The role of EIARs in the EIA process and fundamental considerations in the preparation of an EIAR, including consideration of alternatives, avoidance of significant adverse effects, mitigation and monitoring, provision of relevant information, public participation and
objectivity.

2. The key activities involved in the preparation of an EIAR, namely screening, scoping, consultation, consideration of alternatives, establishing the baseline, assessment of effects, mitigation of significant adverse effects and assessing residual effects.

3. Guidance on the presentation of information. This document contains links to specific legal and other relevant information that is available elsewhere.
