40 CFR 1501.8 - Time limits.
prev | next
Although the Council has decided that prescribed universal time limits for the entire NEPA process are too inflexible, Federal agencies are encouraged to set time limits appropriate to individual actions (consistent with the time intervals required by § 1506.10). When multiple agencies are involved the reference to agency below means lead agency.
(a) The agency shall set time limits if an applicant for the proposed action requests them: Provided, That the limits are consistent with the purposes of NEPA and other essential considerations of national policy.
(vi) Degree to which relevant information is known and if not known the time required for obtaining it.
(2) Set overall time limits or limits for each constituent part of the NEPA process, which may include:
(iv) Review of any comments on the draft environmental impact statement from the public and agencies.
(3) Designate a person (such as the project manager or a person in the agency's office with NEPA responsibilities) to expedite the NEPA process.
