Environmental impact assessment is widely recognized as an effective tool for supporting the sustainable development and accepted as an important decision support tool in planning. Although more than 100 countries have set up their environmental impact assessment systems, less than half are predicated on clear and specific legal provisions. The review system that is used within Taiwan is different from other countries in the manner in which the application is processed and reviewed. Thus, the current paper attempts to analyze the process and characteristics of EIA review system in Taiwan, thereafter, Pinnan industrial park project EIA is used as an example to demonstrate the detailed EIA review system.
