The Falkland Islands aim to have a transparent and accountable process for approving environmental documents. Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) are subject to a 42 day public consultation process and must be made publicly available throughout this and once the final document has been approved. A new guidance document has been produced by FIG with input from industry and consultees and is available below.
The Falkland Islands Government (FIG) and companies operating in the Falklands agreed at the Environmental Forum in 2015 that Waste Management Plans should also be made publicly available. This encourages greater understanding of operations and processes surrounding waste disposal from exploration drilling.
