Peru has a wide experience in the implementation of EIA. In the last decade the EIA system is developed as a tool for environmental management. Recently SEA implementation is in process (with currently some pilot cases).
The legislation of the national System of Environmental Impact Assessment (SEIA), approved in 2009, sets the procedures for EIA and the SEA. Environmental authorities in the case of the EIA are sectoral authorities. The Ministry of Environment evaluates and approves the SEA.
