Environmental impact assessment

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required under the authorisation procedure for a large number of projects where significant environmental impacts are expected. These include, for example, motorways, federal roads, railways, waterways, dikes, sewage treatment plants, landfills, high-voltage power lines, industrial zones or plants, or intensive livestock farming.

This procedure examines, describes and evaluates the effects on humans, animals and plants, water, soil, noise, air, climate, cultural and material, as well as interactions. The results of the environmental impact assessment must be taken into account in the administrative decisions.

The EIA must involve the public.

The EIA is an independent part of the administrative procedure in question, which is used to decide on the project in question ("huckepack procedure").
