Environmental Assessments

The CNSOPB’s responsibility for environmental protection includes ensuring EAs are conducted for exploration projects and any other offshore petroleum projects for which an EA is not required pursuant to CEAA 2012. EAs required by the CNSOPB are referred to as Accord Act EAs. Accord Act EAs and their associated documentation, as well as EAs conducted under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, are available on this Public Registry and the Public Registry Archives.
