Environmental Impact Statements in Belgium

Boes, Marc | January 1, 1990

In the following Article, Professor Boes analyzes the statutory framework implementing the use of the environmental impact statement (“EIS”) in Belgium. Authority for the EIS flows from the EEC Directive, but as yet, the national government in Belgium has erected no regulatory structure. Thus, the Article examines two of Belgium’s regions which have established a regulatory system for EIS’s.
