The completion of an EIA or Strategic Impact Assessment (SIA) is required when for assessing the positive orand negative impacts of a project or plan on the environment. We endeavour to make the process as smooth as possible.
At the beginning of the process, we assist clients in questioning whether an EIA or SIA is actually required, potentially saving a great deal of time and investment. Should one be necessary, we assist in EIAs for projects, and extended and limited SIAs for plans, in the public and private sector. We also integrate nature assessments in the project, if required.
Furthermore, we not only review EIAs/SIA to ensure they are in accordance with regulations, but we also advise on the actual drafting of EIAs/SIA and the participation of the public. Clients also benefit from our close contact with the authorities that review EIAs in the Benelux, ensuring their assessment is handled as efficiently as possible.
In addition, we assist in litigation cases on EIAs and are also active in drafting EIA legislation.
