Law on Environmental Protection No. 8934 of 5 September 2002- article 27 for transboundary EIA, article 28 for SEA

Law on EIA No. 8990 of 2003 (draft revised law on EIA being discussed mid-2010)

Legal framework for SEA comprises Law on Environmental Protection (No. 8934, 2002) and the EIA Law (No. 8990, 2003). However, SEA regulation is not yet fully in line with the SEA Protocol. EIA Law treats SEA as an extension of EIA and uses the same requirements for scoping and SEA reports as for EIA.

Review

- From Review of Implementation, 2003:

  • Law on Environmental Protection (in both entities: Federation of Bosnia & Herzegovina; and Republic Srpska) - includes the main provisions from the Espoo Convention and SEA. New secondary legislation for EIA in preparation (list of installations & activities, procedures, permits, etc.)

 

Other

See Ministry website 

Basic provisions related to EIA in the entity Laws on Environmental Protection

  • OG of Federation No. 33/03
  • OG of Republic of Srpska No. 53/2002

In the Republic of Srpska, adopted Law on Amendments to the Law on Environmental Protection (OG of Republic of Srpska No. 109/2005). Consolidated text in the OG of Republic of Srpska No. 28/2007. (Amendments relate mainly to the provisions for EIA procedure, to achieve harmonization with those in the Law of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.)

Specific provisions related to EIA are set out in the Regulations and Governmental Decrees issued by both entity ministries. These regulations determine the following:

  • Projects and installations for which EIA is mandatory, and the criteria for determining the obligation and extent of EIA (OG RS 7/06)
  • Installations and facilities whose operation may be commenced only if the environmental permit has been granted (OG RS 7/06, OG FBH 19/04)
  • Specific requirements for submitting an environmental permit application for installations and sections for which environmental permits were issued prior to enacting the Laws on Environmental Protection (OG RS 24/06, OG FBH 68/05)
  • Timeframe for applying for an environmental permit for installations issued with an environmental permit before the Law on Environmental Protection entered into force (OG RS 24/06, OG 68/05).

In addition, regulations on the mandatory requirements and criteria for enterprises and institutions entitled to perform professional activities in environmental protection, such as compiling EIA studies, have been passed in both entities. (OG RS 15/07 and OG FBH 68/05).

Legal framework for SEA is differently defined in each entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina. These framework obligations for SEA are not yet operational due to the lack of implementing secondary legislation.

  • Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina: the basic provisions of the SEA are generally defined in Art. 51-52 of the Law on Environmental Protection (July 2003).
  • Republic of Srpska: SEA generally defined in Art. 60-61 of the Law on Environmental Protection (2002).
  • Brcko District does not yet have environmental legislation.

Review

Espoo Convention part of Romanian legislation by ratification according to the Law no. 22/2001

This general legal framework is strengthened by the provisions of the EGO no. 195/2005 on environmental protection

In order to fully transpose the EIA Directives, the Romanian environmental authorities have issued the GD no. 918/2002 establishing the framework procedure for the EIA and approving the list of private or public projects to which the procedure must be applied, as amended by GD 1705/2004, which contains transboundary provisions that transpose art. 7 of the EIA Directive. The transboundary provisions are within art. 13 of the GD 918/2002, as amended

For ensuring full implementation of the Convention, the Ministry of Environment and Water Management has issued the MO no. 864/2002 for the approval of the impact assessment procedure and public participation to the decision making process for the projects with transboundary impact which fully observes the steps of the Convention

The national legislation on EIA is additionally ensured by the following normative acts:

  • Order of the Minister of Waters and Environmental Protection no. 860/2002 (OJ no. 52/30.01.2003) on the approval of the procedure for the EIA and the issuance of the environmental agreement, as amended by MO 210/2004 and MO 1037/2005
  • Order of the Minister of Waters and Environmental Protection no. 863/2002 for the approval of the methodology guidelines to be applied to the procedure for EIA (OJ no. 52/30.01.2003)
  • Order of the Minister of Environment and Water Management no. 171/2005 on setting-up the technical review committee (TRC) at central level (OJ no 236/22.03.2005) - this order contributed to the capacity - building for transboundary EIA procedure.

SEA basic requirements and framework obligations are laid out in the Framework Environmental Law (2005). Detailed procedures have to be set out in bylaws. The Law requires SEA for strategies, plans and programmes, (planning documents in the Law) as well as amendments to such planning documents that are proposed by a body of the state administration and passed by the Government. SEA is to be required for planning documents and their amendments, which do not have to be required by legal regulatory or administrative provisions (more widely than is required by the EC Directive) and which set the framework for future development consent.
