Examples of SEA Reports for Development Plans under the EIA Ordinance

To formalize the administrative EIA system, the EIA Ordinance was enacted in 1997 and became operational since April 1998. The Ordinance requires a list of Designated Projects, including major urban development and redevelopment projects, to conduct mandatory documentation and public consultation. These major development and redevelopment projects are listed under Schedule 3 of the EIA Ordinance and they are regarded as SEA in many developed countries. Details of the EIA Ordinance is posted on EPD's website http://www.epd.gov.hk/eia.
