The EPA’s Environmental Impact Assessment (Part IV Divisions 1 and 2) Procedures Manual provides guidance, primarily for proponents and consultants, on the environmental impact assessment process for proposals.
The Procedures Manual supports the Administrative Procedures and contains more detailed information on each step of the EIA process, including processes after an implementation statement is published by the Minister. It also contains links to relevant instructions and forms used through the EIA process.
In the current version (3.0), section 1.2.1 and 18.104.22.168 adds the relevant procedures for the Index of Marine Surveys for Assessments requirements, and the new Index of Biodiversity for Assessments Submission Portal process. Section 1.2.1, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 3.1.4, and 188.8.131.52 have been updated to reflect the updated Guidance for Mine Closure process and requirements, and section 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 have been updated to reflect the requirement that proposals in the Pilbara IBRA Region, the EPA may require preparation of an Impact Reconciliation Procedure.
