Procedure where a significant project in another EEA State may affect Northern Ireland

15.—(1) If the Department receives information from another EEA State made available under Article 7(1) and (2) of the EIA Directive (which concern information relating to a project in one EEA State which is likely to have significant effects on the environment of another EEA State) in relation to a significant project in that EEA State, the Department shall—

(a)arrange for that information to be made available, in a reasonable time, to the consultation bodies and such members of the public which, in its opinion, are likely to be concerned by the project;

(b)ensure that the consultation bodies and members of the public referred to in sub-paragraph (a) are given an opportunity to give their opinion on the information provided to the competent authority in the EEA State during any period agreed under paragraph (2)(b).

(2) In accordance with Article 7(4) of the EIA Directive, the Department shall also—

(a)enter into consultations with the EEA State concerned about the potential significant effects of the project on the environment in Northern Ireland and the measures envisaged to reduce or eliminate those effects; and

(b)seek to agree with the EEA State a reasonable period, before consent for the project is granted, during which any opinions received under paragraph (1)(b) can be forwarded to the EEA State.

(3) If another EEA State has taken a decision to grant or refuse consent and has informed the Department of that decision in accordance with Article 9(2) of the EIA Directive, the Department shall take such steps as it considers appropriate to bring to the attention of the public any information received from that EEA State in relation to that decision.
