Environmental Impact Assessment Reports are an integral part of the EIA process and it is important for those preparing these reports to be familiar with the process and vital sections needed. This helps all involved to understand where the information presented in an EIAR comes from, why it is included and what the purpose of the EIAR is. This course will cover the fundamental principles in putting together an EIAR, EIA screening, the information to include in vital areas and much more.

 

All attendees will receive a full course pack to refer back to and will gain CPD hours at the end of the session (if applicable).

 

Places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis.
