Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) instituted by the Joint Ministerial Decision 69269/5387/90 within the Law Νo. 1650/86 and are for each type of surgery that is done to the environment (physical and human ). The list of projects provided by the laws that require EIAs are enormous. By way of illustration of the construction of oil refineries to any project or installation required EIA, different classes and different requirements for each case defined in detail by law.


Nobody can get any new license or revise earlier, for a very long list of activities, if not competent to testify ICM services. Information can each citizen looking to get into relevant legislation and of course the local environment agencies of the Prefectures.

Environmental Impact Assessment are preceding each project , made ​​in relation to the technical studies for the project and is mandatory documented scientifically, which must be determined subsequently by multidisciplinary audit committee. The EIA regarding the impact on the environment and humans from each project or intervention.


In relation to standards legislation defines all the parameters to be monitored, analyzed and explained adequately, but this can not meet the individual detailed parameters to scholars to control and exploit as the case of the project. The working group will conduct an EIA should be composed of scientists from different disciplines, depending on the needs of the study .

Basic specifications of EIA

  • Multidisciplinary team working
  • Documentation of all reported data
  • Alternative proposals for the construction of the project
  • Detailed reference to the lack of data
  • Analysis and assessment of impacts on the environment and people with short-term and long-term action

  • Proposals to restore damage caused to the environment
  • Conditions for the shortest possible causing environmental damage

  • Correlation of response in relation to the National Development Strategy
  • Promotion of respect for human intervention and environment
  • Short approach sustainability of intervention
  • Identify possible social reactions
  • Summary in language understandable by the average non- specialist reader etc.



From the above, it is easily understood that the EIA can not be done with sloppy requires a multidisciplinary working group to be able to create a truly remarkable ICM whereby a project after its completion have many chances to not create a serious and unexpected problem in the environment with what this entails.


GEP are able to undertake Environmental Impact Assessment of all activities and classes, the collection of all necessary documentation and communication with relevant departments, until the filing of the Study to the relevant department and approval of environmental terms. For this purpose, has a well trained scientific staff.
