The Representatives,

Noting the requirements under Article 8 and Annex I of the Environmental Protocol to prepare Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) for proposed activities in the Antarctic Treaty Area;

Recognising that all EIAs need to conform to the requirements of Annex I of the Protocol;

Recognising also that Parties should already have in place national legislation which includes procedures and guidelines for the preparation of EIAs in Antarctica;

Conscious of the need for general guidance for the preparation of EIAs to achieve effectiveness in fulfilling the obligations of the Protocol;

Recommend that:

The Guidelines for Environmental Impact Assessment in Antarctica appended to this Resolution be made available to be used by those engaged in the preparation of Environmental Impact Assessments for proposed activities in Antarctica, to the extent that such use does not conflict with the national legislative regime and other obligations of the Party or Parties concerned.
