Immunities to proponents regarding EIA

What immunities do project proponents enjoy with regard to the EIA process?

The issuance of an environmental impact assessment license in respect of a project shall afford no defense to any civil action or to a prosecution that may be brought or preferred against a proponent in respect of the manner in which the project is executed, managed or operated (EMCA Section 66.2).

Hence NO immunities are provided.


    What advice would you give to a project promonent to avoid offences related to EIA requirements?
