Actions Requiring Further Review Under SEQR

Type I actions:

A type I action meets or exceeds a threshold contained in the list in section 617.4, or is one on an agency's locally adopted Type I list.

Type I actions:

  • are more likely to have a significant adverse impact on the environment than Unlisted Actions
  • may require a Draft Environmental Impact Statement. (DEIS)

Unlisted Actions

An action that does not meet or exceed a threshold contained in the Type I list in section 617.4, or one that is on an agency's locally adopted Type I list and is not contained in the Type II list. An Unlisted Action requires a determination of significance and may require preparation of a draft E.I.S.

If your action is a Type 1 or Unlisted Action, proceed to Step 2.
