Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) & Thailand Condominiums
(Introduction) ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT & THAI PROPERTY
The Environmental Impact Assessment (“EIA“) is essentially an assessment of the gravity of both potential positive and negative impacts of a development project. These potential environmental impacts are measured and precautionary steps are taken in accordance. The EIA is often referred to as an “analysis of the potential impacts, both positive and negative, of different types of projects or activities on the environment, conditions or circumstances that may affect those projects or activities, and in light thereof – measures for prevention, control and rectification before commencement of the projects or activities.”
Development projects require EIA reports pursuant to Section 46 and Section 51 of the Enhancement and Conservation of National Environmental Quality Act B.E. 2535 (A.D. 1992).
