Decision/Comment: This IEE indicates that the proposed iSTAR Programme is likely to have no more than a minor and transitory impact on the Antarctic environment, provided the recommended mitigation measures identified in this report are carried out. It is therefore concluded that this activity should be allowed to proceed, and that a Comprehensive Environmental Evaluation (CEE) is not required.
