This paper analyses current issues regarding the environmental impact assessment procedure (hereinafter: EIA). The author analyses the legal nature of the decisions made in the EIA procedure and points out the problems which in practice raise the question of whether an EIA should be organized as three independent administrative proceedings or as one comprehensive procedure. In answering the question of whether the appeal is an effective legal remedy in the EIA procedure, special attention was paid to the analysis of the practice of the Administrative Court and the Constitutional Court of Serbia. In the concluding observations, the author points out preconditions for the establishment of a new EIA system.
