Actions Requiring No Further Review Under SEQR

Type II Actions:

Type II actions are a group of actions which either:

  • do not significantly impact the environment, or
  • are otherwise precluded from environmental review under SEQR.

These actions are listed in Section 617.5 or are on an agency's locally adopted Type II list according to procedures established under Part 617.

Type II actions never require preparation of a "determination of significance" or a draft environmental impact statement. (E.I.S.)

If an action is classified as Type II, review under SEQR is completed. Although not required, an agency may choose to provide documentation in the project file that the action has been classified as Type II.
