Step 4: Further EIA

If the EIA gets to the stage where there is a need to carry out a further assessment:

Consultation is required in order to get a detailed view on the adverse impacts/issues of the policy, practice, procedure or service. This could be done by the following:

  • Consulting with equality agencies or groups; relevant staff/students
  • Monitoring reports
  • User feedback, complaints, comments or satisfaction reports
  • EIAs conducted elsewhere on the same or similar area policy (desktop research)
  • Opinions and information from Trade Unions
