Policies and Responsibilities for Implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act Within the Department of the Navy
Document Number: 2019-26093
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-12-05
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Navy
The Department of the Navy (DON) revises portions of its internal regulations that establish the responsibilities and procedures for complying with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). An agency may determine that certain classes of actions normally do not individually or cumulatively have significant environmental impacts and therefore do not require further review under NEPA. Establishing these categories of activities, called categorical exclusions (CATEXs), in the agency's NEPA implementing procedures is a way to reduce unnecessary paperwork and delay. This revision clarifies what types of activities fall under CATEXs and normally do not require additional NEPA analysis.
