Permitting/Regulatory Guidance - Guide/Handbook: FSH 1909.15 - National Environmental Policy Act Handbook: Chapter Zero Code

Abstract

This handbook provides guidance for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 CFR parts 1500-1508), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) NEPA Policies and Procedures (7 CFR part 1b), Forest Service NEPA Procedures (36 CFR part 220), and Forest Service Manual 1950. Guidance in this handbook applies to the fullest extent practicable to analyses and documents; however, work completed under previous policy and guidelines need not be revised. The guidance in the handbook must be used in conjunction with other direction found throughout the Forest Service Manual (FSM) and Forest Service Handbooks (FSH). Specifically, use this handbook in conjunction with FSM 1950, Environmental Policy and Procedures, which sets forth the broad Forest Service objectives, policy, and responsibilities for meeting the requirements of the NEPA. Also, integrate the requirements in this handbook with the procedures set forth in FSM 1920 and FSH 1909.12 and the regulations implementing the National Forest Management Act (36 CFR part 219). Specifically, this handbook provides guidance for analyzing and documenting the environmental consequences of proposed actions. Chapter 10 sets forth guidance on scoping and environmental analysis. Chapters 20, 30, and 40 contain the documentation and process guidance for environmental impact statements (EISs), categorical exclusions (CEs), and environmental assessments (EAs). Chapter 50 addresses implementing and monitoring guidance and chapter 60

provides references.
