NEPA exclusions can be confusing. When do they apply? You want to get your project’s compliance review right and moving forward to stay on time and on budget. Scoping can help.

It can be frustrating to hear that your project needs more in-depth compliance review because it doesn’t qualify for an anticipated exemption. However, with some foresight at the beginning and the expertise of your regulatory compliance experts, you can right-size your project and timeline while limiting the likelihood of project delays or non-compliance.

EBI’s telecommunications environmental experts work with clients up-front to determine the best options and service needs for your project. We leverage our decades of regulatory experience to determine the most accurate scope of work for your project based on federal and state requirements. Proper up-front scoping, whether for project portfolios or single projects, helps you develop a better idea of the timeframe and budget you’ll need for your project. Not only that, but it better positions you for accurate compliance.

Other advantages of scoping include:

  • Lower likelihood of liability for regulatory
  • More accurate project timelines
  • Better relationships with tribal nations
  • Reduced cycle times
  • Increased speed to market

Speed to market is a key concern for any project. Without a deep understanding of FCC exemptions, you can miss opportunities to use the exclusions, resulting in missed deadlines and needlessly complicated projects.
