Permitting/Regulatory Guidance - Guide/Handbook: FSH 1909.15 - National Environmental Policy Act Handbook: Chapter 30, Categorical Exclusion from Documentation

Abstract

The Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations provide for categorical exclusions (CEs) to implement the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for the purpose of reducing delay and paperwork. CEQ regulations allow Federal agencies to exclude from documentation in an environmental assessment (EA) or environmental impact statement (EIS) categories of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. Based on the Agency’s experience and knowledge, the responsible official can conclude that if the action fits within an identified category and analysis shows there are no extraordinary circumstances, then the action would not have significant effects. The following guidance on appropriate use of CE must be

read in conjunction with applicable sections of this handbook, specifically chapter 10.
