Three research propositions were made in this study. These related to the knowledge gaps existing In either the theory or practice of environmental Impact assessment (EIA) and the ISO 14001 environmental management standard. The first one suggests that, in spite of the recognised significance of EIA follow-up, this EIA stage has often been ignored in practice. The second proposition argues that the current approach to EIA focuses on the minimisation of negative environmental impacts of a project rather than the enhancement of positive ones. The third proposition suggests that although ISO 14001 contains environmental planning requirements, they have shortcomings, which preclude ISO 14001 from playing the role of EIA in environmental planning of projects.
