National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) integrates environmental stewardship practices into our decision making to avoid and minimize environmental impacts associated with our activities. This includes the evaluation of all prospective projects to ensure compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA, and other associated laws and regulations including the Endangered Species Act, National Historic Preservation Act, Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, etc.

NEPA requires that Federal agencies assess the potential environmental effects of proposed actions prior to making any decisions. As part of the NEPA review process, CBP requires a comprehensive review of potential environmental impacts; thorough consultation with stakeholders, and; the identification of opportunities to avoid, minimize, and, where appropriate, mitigate for impacts to sensitive resources. CBP prepares the appropriate environmental decision documents and, when required, provides them to the public for a review period.

The public is encouraged to look at the environmental decision documents currently out for review and submit comments.
