COMPREHENSIVE ENVIRONMENTAL EVALUATION (CEE):
METHODOLOGY FOR REVIEWING ACTIVITIES FOR WHICH A CEE HAS BEEN PREPARED

Encourage Consultative Parties to:
1. Include in their procedures for assessing the environmental impacts of their activities in Antarctica, provision for review of the activities undertaken following the completion of a CEE.
2. Adopt the following process for CEE follow-up:
(a) Review activities carried out following completion of CEE, including analysis of whether the activities were conducted as proposed, whether applicable mitigation measures were implemented, and whether the impacts of the activity were as predicted in the assessment;
(b) Record any changes to the activities described in the CEE, the reasons for the changes, and the environmental consequences of those changes; and
(c) Report to the Parties on the outcomes of (a) and (b) above.
