What is Initial Environmental Examination (IEE)?

Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) – The first stage in the Environmental Assessment of a project at pre-feasibility level, for identifying and assessing possible environmental impacts.

It is a preliminary environmental review of reasonably foreseeable impacts of proposed activity to determine the adverse impacts whether an EIA is required or not.

The process of an EIA commences at the early stages of a project. When the project is first considered, not when construction has begun. Once a developer has identified a need, assessed project design and site; the next step is to see the positive and negative effects of this development on the environment. The outcome of the screening process is a decision to either include or exclude the development from the full EIA Process.

Consulting firm should review the existing environmental policies, guidelines, regulations and DoE procedures for obtaining Environmental Clearance. The secondary source data should be collected for preparation of IEE report by the consulting firm. The IEE Report should contain a) Description of the project, b) Policy and legislative aspects, c) Description of the environment, d) Identify predicted impacts and e) an environmental management Plan.
