Environmental management in general and particularly the environmental assessment are regulated in the Congo through the following: the Constitution of January the 20th, 2002; the Law No. 003/91 of 23rd of April 1991 on the protection of the environment; the Decree 2009-415 of the 20st November 2009 which lays down the scope, content and procedures of the study and the environmental and social impact notice; specific laws and regulations in various development sectors (forestry, mining, water , energy, urban planning etc) and conventions, international agreements and treaties.

One of the peculiarities of Decree 2009/415 is that it includes plans and programs in the project definition. Strategic environmental assessment is therefore identical to environmental and social impact assessment.
