How does implementation of NEPA work?

In 1978, CEQ promulgated regulations [40 CFR Parts 1500-15081] implementing NEPA that are binding on all federal agencies. The regulations address the procedural provisions of NEPA and the administration of the NEPA process, including preparation of Environmental Impact Statements. To date, the only change in NEPA regulations occurred on May 27,1986, when CEQ amended Section 1502.22 of its regulations to clarify how agencies are to carry out their environmental evaluations in situations where information is incomplete or unavailable.
