Description of the different document types:

Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) – a documentation of comprehensive studies on environmental baseline conditions of a contiguous area. It also includes an assessment of the carrying capacity of the area to absorb impacts from co-located projects such as those in industrial estates or economic zones (ecozones).

Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) – the document of studies on the environmental impacts of a project including the discussions on direct and indirect consequences upon human welfare and ecological and environmental integrity. The EIS may vary from project to project but shall contain in every case all relevant information and details about the proposed project or undertaking, including the appropriate mitigating and enhancement measures to address the identified environmental impacts. >> read more…

Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) Checklist Report Form – a short and simplified checklist version of an IEE prescribed by the DENR and required to be filled up by proponents for describing the project's environmental impact and corresponding mitigation and enhancement measures for non-environmentally critical projects located in an ECA. The DENR prescribes appropriate corresponding IEE Checklists for different projects with minimal and manageable impacts. >> read more…

Programmatic Environmental Performance Report and Management Plan (PEPRMP) – documentation of actual cumulative environmental impacts of co-located projects with proposals for expansions. The PEPRMP should also describe the effectiveness of current environmental mitigation measures and plans for performance improvement.

Environmental Performance Report and Management Plan (EPRMP) – documentation of the actual cumulative environmental impacts and effectiveness of current measures for single projects that are already operating.

Project Description (PD) – a standard documentation of the description necessary to confirm non-coverage of Category D and Category C Projects as well as projects operating prior to 1982. (Annex C of the PEISS Coverage Screening Guidelines for the format/contents)
