Nº 35550-MINAE(*)-S-MOPT-MAG-MEIC (*) Amendment to the General Regulations on Environmental Impact Assessment Procedures (EIA) in Intervention of Historical and Architectural Monuments



The modification to the General Regulation on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Procedures in the Matter of Intervention of Historical and Architectural Monuments, published in 2009 in Costa Rica, does not impose specific obligations on businesses. However, it establishes the need for the competent authorities to consider the impact of any intervention in historical and architectural monuments on the environment and cultural heritage. Therefore, businesses that are planning to carry out activities that may impact historical and architectural monuments must comply with the EIA procedures established by this regulation and obtain the necessary permits from the competent authorities.
