Abstract

A recent study, carried out for Directorate General for the Environment of the European Commission, investigated the scope and application of environmental impact assessment (EIA) legislation and current EIA practice in Member States (15) and applicant countries of Central and Eastern Europe (10), specifically in relation to the geological disposal of radioactive waste. Legal provisions were assessed against the requirements of the European Union EIA Directives, along with the extent to which international ‘bestpractice’ has been adopted in each country. The study also derived an approach to EIA, capable of adoption in all 25 study countries, which would lead to consistency and bestjavascript:void(0); practice in the context of geological repositories.
