Environmental impact assessment in Estonia; Keskkonnaekspertiis Eestis

Technical Report:

Abstract

Environment impact assessment (EIA) is an important procedure for ensuring that the likely effects of a development on the environment are fully understood and taken into account before the development is allowed to go ahead. This publication provides people involved in EIA, like developers and their advisers, experts and consultants, first-hand information on the process of EIA in Estonia. Chapter 1 gives the full text of the Estonian Government Order No314 from 13.11.1992 on the Environmental Impact Assessment in Estonia. This is the first legal document on EIA in Estonia and is regarded as a framework document setting general principles of EIA. Chapter 2 gives the full text of the Order of the Estonian Minister of Environment No8 from 14.03.1994 on the Methodological Guidelines for Implementing Environmental Impact Assessment in Estonia. The Order elaborates further on the procedures of EIA and gives a developer practical approach, what data is needed to be submitted to competent authority, and also provides experts with practical assignments that should be undertaken while compiling an environmental impact statement (EIS). The Order should be regarded as an attachment to the earlier framework document. Both documents express the important role of the public in the EIA process  More>>

Both documents express the important role of the public in the EIA process for the first time in environmental legal acts of Estonia. Estonian administrative system is going through a reform.

In the following text county governments and corresponding environmental departments are regarded as `regional level` authorities, whereas the Ministry of Environment - as the `state level` authority. The `regional level` also concerns two cities - Tallinn and Narva, which have city environmental departments}
