Technical and Administrative Reviews
Once an application passes electronic validation, technical, and administrative reviews, and mitigation strategies are accepted
(for a non-standard application), then a short-term 4-year disposition is issued with the appropriate terms and conditions.
The following Standards Operating Procedures outline the process, roles and responsibilities for technical and administrative
reviews of interim submissions:
- SOP L7.0 - EAP Technical Review of Interim Submissions
- SOP L16.0 - EAP Administrative Review of Interim Submissions

Field Referrals and Applicant Appeals
Non-standard interim EAP application submissions will be referred to the appropriate SRD field office for review by Lands
Division personnel. This referral is undertaken by SRD for all non-standard interim submissions in order to accept, reject,
or negotiate alternate mitigation strategies identified on the Non-standard Mitigation Supplement for all of the approval
standards that won’t be met by the applicant.
The field referral and review process for non-standard applications requires the designated Lands Area Office to review
the portion of the interim submission that caused it to become non-standard. This enables discussion between industry and
SRD field staff on the proposed alternate mitigation strategies and how best to minimize impacts to the landscape.
A field referral may result in a Non-standard Mitigation Supplement being rejected by the lands area office. In these cases
an applicant has the ability to appeal this decision through the Public Land Appeal Board.
