The document clearly defines the field of applying environmental impact assessment: oil and gas refineries, heat and nuclear power plants, chemical production, construction of airports, air fields, automobile roads and hydro-technical facilities of sea and river ports and other areas. Under the law public discussion is arranged to reveal and collect proposals of the public. The document implies responsibility for violation of legislation on environmental impact assessment, temporarily ban and termination of operations of enterprises if they violate legislation.
