EIS Timelines

 Home / EIS Timelines

Major milestones in Federal agency preparation of an environmental impact statement (EIS) pursuant to NEPA are: issuance of a notice of intent (NOI) to prepare an EIS, publication of first a draft and then a final EIS, and issuance of a record of decision (ROD). To assist agencies in streamlining their NEPA processes, CEQ has compiled data on timelines for 1,276 EISs for which a notice of availability of a final EIS was published between January 1, 2010, and December 31, 2018, and a ROD was issued by June 18, 2019.

The information above updates the December 2018 CEQ report on the timelines of EISs issued 2010-2017:
