The EIA Directive 2011/92/EU has been transposed in BIH and EIA processes are already established. The investment schemes come under Annex II of the EIA Directive thus implying a review by the competent authorities. The schemes relate to medium and low voltage reinforcement and expansions, they are expected to have minimal environmental impacts and it is unlikely that they will require an EIA. The Bank's financing will be limited to components that do not necessitate an environmental impact assessment.
The Promoters are public undertakings and will organise tendering in line with open or restricted procedures, both of which should include a publication in the OJEU.
