MUST READ: Thailand condominium developers are required to procure an environmental impact assessment (EIA) approval prior to obtaining a construction permit if their proposed condominium meets certain criteria.
Any proposed condominium with 80 or more units and/or 4,000 or more sqm of utilised area must have an EIA approval to begin construction. For smaller projects and activities, it is possible that an Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) would be required, but this is not always the case and depends on the activity and location.
