Regulatory processes are in place that govern development in the coastal zone of the world’s oceans as well as in open ocean environments within a country’s jurisdiction. These processes exist to advocate avoidance, minimization, and mitigation for the foreseeable environmental and social impacts that occur with offshore development. CSA streamlines the regulatory process by providing quality documents and permit applications that fully comply with regulatory requirements to support projects in marine and coastal environments worldwide.
Impact assessments needed for the regulatory process varies widely among domestic and foreign governing authorities. CSA understands these needs and has a long and successful history of helping clients meet the regulatory requirement both domestically and abroad for multidisciplinary projects. CSA’s outstanding ability to synthesize large amounts of interdisciplinary information with the objective of producing documents to support offshore projects helps our clients maintain cost-control measures while adhering to critical project deadlines and milestones.
CSA meets client needs for the many forms of Impact Assessments by providing a staff experienced in all aspects of the assessment and associated permitting process. CSA is recognized worldwide as a “go-to” business not only for developing assessment documents, but, importantly, also for understanding and anticipating both the regulatory framework and clients’ needs.
