In Slovakia, the process of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is
regulated by the Act No 127/1994 of the National Council of the Slovak
Republic. The Act provides that the impact assessment of human activities
on biodiversity must be a part of the written EIA report.
The EIA aims at providing an early and comprehensive identification, description and evaluation of particular project impacts on human beings (health, quality of life), animals, plants and other components of the environment.
