Australia, Oceania
The Department’s social impact assessment guideline for State significant mining, petroleum production, and extractive industry development (State significant resource projects) establishes a clear, consistent and rigorous framework for identifying, predicting, evaluating and developing responses to the social impacts of those projects, as part of the overall environmental impact assessment.

The Department’s social impact assessment guideline for State significant mining, petroleum production, and extractive industry development (State significant resource projects) establishes a clear, consistent and rigorous framework for identifying, predicting, evaluating and developing responses to the social impacts of those projects, as part of the overall environmental impact assessment.


Social impact assessment is not a one-size-fits-all process. It needs to be tailored to suit the nature of the project and the scale of its impacts.

The Department has also developed a Scoping Tool to help applicants to determine the scope of their SIA. Further information about scoping a social impact assessment can be found in Section 3 of the guideline.
