Strategic environmental assessment directive
Water for life and livelihoods, River basin management plans, Glossary, Published by the Environment Agency in 2016, describes the strategic environmental assessment directive (2001/42/EC) as: ‘European environmental legislation which requires an ‘environmental assessment’ to be carried out for certain plans and programmes whose formal preparation began after 21 July 2004 (or are prepared but not adopted or submitted by a legislative procedure by 21 July 2006), and which are considered likely to have significant effects on the environment. The term “Strategic Environmental Assessment” is used in United Kingdom guidance to mean an environmental assessment under this Directive.’
