Preliminary examination of the individual case according to UVPG
The preliminary assessment of the individual case is an instrument of the Environmental Impact Assessment Act (UVPG) and represents a rough assessment of whether a planned project may have significant environmental impacts on certain defined protection criteria. The specifications for which projects this assessment must be carried out and which assessment criteria and protection criteria must be taken into account are set out in the Annexes to the UVPG.
According to the UVPG, the competent authority must determine whether an environmental impact assessment (EIA) is required for a project within the meaning of the UVPG on the basis of appropriate information on the project and its own information.
In the expert opinion on the preliminary examination of the individual case, the area of influence of the plant is defined, for which essentially the site criteria of the UVPG are examined. In order to check the criteria, the relevant information is researched and / or information and data are obtained from the competent authorities. If necessary, principles and results from further expert opinions are incorporated.
Based on various criteria of the UVPG, the potential impacts of the project are presented and assessed. A final statement is made as to whether the project is likely to have significant adverse environmental impacts.
With the help of the preliminary assessment of the individual case, the authority examines whether an environmental impact assessment has to be carried out.
