Guidelines and procedures

The EPA's guidelines and procedures framework separates the EPA’s documents into two streams – those which apply to the EPA’s environmental impact assessment (EIA) of proposals and scheme, and other documents published by the EPA which do not apply to EIA.

The framework further separates the documents into two EIA streams – those related to the procedures and process of EIA, and those which relate to how environmental matters are considered in EIA.

This section of the website is structured around the EPA's hierarchy for its guidelines and procedures, and you can download an information sheet: Questions and Answers - The EPA’s Guidelines and Procedures Framework
