On December 9, 2019, Federal Environmental Agency ("IBAMA") has published the Ordinance No. 26 ("Ordinance"), establishing the Federal Environmental Licensing Management System ("SisG-LAF"), an online platform to manage the demands related to environmental licensing processes.

The main purpose of SisG-LAF is to improve the process through the automation of services provided by IBAMA.

The SisG-LAF encompasses:

  • Request of Preliminary, Installation and Operating Licenses;
  • Issuance of Reference Terms for environmental assessments;
  • Filing of documents in compliance with conditions set forth on the Licenses;
  • Request of permits issued by IBAMA.

It is important to highlight that the use of SisG-LAF will occur gradually, starting with the requests of Preliminary License, and a schedule should be disclosed by IBAMA for the availability of services.
