The main objectives of EIA in Thailand, as in other countries, is to prevent environmental problems from major development project in order to reach to sustainable development goal.
The first mandatory notification for EIA requirement was issued in 1981. Presently, under Section 46 of the Enhancement and Conservation of National Environmental Quality Act 1992. The Minister of Natural Resources and Environment with the approval of National Environment Board (NEB), has the power to notify the type and size of projects or activities requiring EIA.
For large scale projects which will cause significant impacts, the EIA reports must be submitted to the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP) to be considered and give recommendations to permitting agencies or cabinet. EIA reports have to be prepared by a consulting firm which is registered by ONEP.
Environmental Impact Evaluation Bureau, Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning prepares guidance for the general public, namely “Environmental Impact Assessment in Thailand”.
