a. For obtaining The Environmental Permit
The environmental report is developed as a part of the Strategic Environmental Assessment, and is meant to obtain the ENVIRONMENTAL PERMIT.
The framework content of the environmental report can be found in Annex 2 of Decision No 1.076 of 8 July 2004 on the procedure for carrying out the environmental assessment of plans and programmes.
The SEA assessment, i.e. the preparation of an Environmental Report can be carried out for types of Plans and Programmes, such as:
– Zonal Urban Plans (PUZ);
– Detail urban plans (PUD);
– General urban plans (PUG);
– Area or county land use plans (PATZ, PATJ); etc.
The environmental report includes the relevant information in the actual plan or program, regarding the environmental impact their implementation could have:
the current state of the environment and its likely evolution if the proposed plan or programme is not implemented, the environmental characteristics of the area likely to be significantly affected, any existing environmental problems, potential significant environmental effects, etc.
Furthermore, the information must be accompanied by graphic parts (maps, graphics, sketches, diagrams), and the report must provide measures for reducing negative consequences and alternatives, including the reasons for choosing one of them.
OCON ECORISC S.R.L. offers consultancy both for the elaboration of the Environmental Report, and for its support in working groups (with authorities and experts from various fields).
b. For obtaining The Environmental Agreement
THE ENVIRONMENTAL AGREEMENT is the regulatory act required for the implementation of a project from an environmental point of view and is used to obtain the Construction Authorisation.

– Notification, according to Annex 5.A. to the procedure;
– Presentation Memorandum, according to Annex 5.E to the procedure;
– Environmental Impact Assessment Report, according to Annex 4, the information requested by the project manager for the projects subject to environmental impact evaluation and taking into account the requirements of the competent environmental protection authorities.
The Environmental Agreement is valid for the entire duration of the works related to the project for which it was issued, provided there are no modifications.
At the end of the investment, before commissioning, an Environmental Authorisation / Integrated Environmental Authorisation is requested, as needed.
c. For obtaining The Environmental Authorisation
According to the provisions in Annex 1 to the procedure, List of activities to the procedure for issuing the environmental permit of Order No 1798 of 19 November 2007 approving the procedure for issuing the environmental authorisation, the activities mentioned are subject to obtaining the ENVIRONMENTAL AUTHORISATION.
