Process of transfer of EIA license

An environmental impact assessment license may be transferred by the holder to another person only if the following process is adhered to:
1. The transfer must only apply in respect of the project in relation to which such license was issued (EMCA Section 65.1).
2. The person to whom the license is transferred and the person transferring it shall jointly notify the Director-General of NEMA in writing of the transfer, not later than thirty days after the transfer (EMCA Section 65.2).
3. Any transfer of an environmental impact assessment license shall take effect on the date the Director-General is notified of the transfer (EMCA Section 65.4).
