A bill (No. 5996-D-2016) has been proposed in the Chamber of Deputies to establish minimum requirements for Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA), required for any person or entity, public or private, that intends to carry out projects that may have significant impacts on the environment. An annex to the bill lists the categories of projects that would be subject to the EIA requirement. The same proposal was introduced in the previous legislative session as BillNo. 2000-D-2015.
