Analysis of environmental assessment regimes in jurisdictions outside the UK

The Office for Environmental Protection (OEP) is a new public body. We protect and improve the environment by holding government and other public bodies to account. The objectives of this work are to: Enable us to analyse and report on the implementation and effectiveness of Habitat Regulation Assessments (HRA), Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEA) laws in England and NI, and the potential for future improvements in these areas, by making comparisons with and using examples from environmental assessment regimes in other jurisdictions that are broadly equivalent or have similar objectives to HRA, EIA and SEA. We want to understand how the legal framework, wider legal context, policy, guidance, practice, caselaw and other factors influence success or failure of the regimes on the ground. OEP may use this information to make recommendations for improvements to the existing arrangements in England and NI. Support the OEP's work to influence legislative or practical reforms to environmental assessment in England and NI to maintain or improve environmental protection.
