Sahabat Alam Malaysia calls on the federal government and relevant agencies to make public impact assessments such as social impact assessments (SIA), traffic impact assessments (TIA) and radiological impact assessments (RIA), and seek feedback prior to their approval.

An SIA and TIA are required for relevant development projects prior to the grant of planning permission under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1976 (TCPA), while an RIA is needed under the Atomic Energy Licensing Act 1984 in dealing with radioactive waste, prior to the grant of a license for keeping such waste.
