In accordance with Article 17 to 22 of EIA Procedure, Consultant Licensing process was set out so as to verify and ensure qualification of the consultants who wish to undertake an EIA or IEE study. Currently, the full-scale licensing procedure called as “Licensing Scheme” is under development; however, the Scheme would come into force after a couple of months. For the transitional period until the date of issuance of the Scheme, ECD-MONREC provides a guidance of transitional registration according to Article 17 (a) of EIA Procedure.
If you wish to undertake any IEE/EIA studies, you shall follow the transitional registration process below:
1. Transitional consultant registration forms
