EIA Improvement Project - 9. Peer Review

Guideline 9: Peer Review

Peer review can contribute to confidence from the community and other stakeholders in the integrity of EIA.

Peer reviews of EIA documents (e.g. specialist studies) are often undertaken by consultants who should practice competently, demonstrate integrity and promote best practice. This guideline sets out a methodology for independent peer review including criteria to determine the suitably of a peer reviewer, review practice, review reporting and post approval requirements. It will provide for greater consistency in peer review.
