THE EIA PROCESS

The EIA process is guided by regulations made in terms of Section 24 (5) of the National Environmental Management Act (Act No. 107 of 1998) (NEMA). In addition to specifying the sorts of activities for which Environmental Authorisation is necessary, the regulations also set out the procedures for the preparation, submission, processing, consideration of and decisions on applications for Environmental Authorisation. An EIA involves four phases:

  • Application and Initial Notification
  • Scoping Phase
  • Environmental Impact Assessment Phase (Including EMP)
  • Environmental Authorisation Phase
