The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Information and Resources

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) generally requires state and local government agencies to inform decision makers and the public about the potential environmental impacts of proposed projects, and to reduce those environmental impacts to the extent feasible.

The laws and rules governing the CEQA process are contained in the CEQA statute (Public Resources Code Section 21000 and following), the CEQA Guidelines (California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Section 15000 and following), published court decisions interpreting CEQA, and locally adopted CEQA procedures.

The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) serves several important functions in the administration of CEQA. Please note that CEQA is enforced through litigation and not by any agency, including OPR.

OPR runs the State Clearinghouse (SCH) which coordinates State level review and filing of CEQA documents. Established in 1973, the SCH is responsible for managing the State’s environmental review process pursuant to CEQA. The CEQA Guidelines require lead agencies to file notices or submit many types of environmental documents to the SCH under certain circumstances. CEQA documents filed with the OPR must be submitted via CEQA Submit for publication to CEQAnet.
