To further transparency and openness in its implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) established a policy and, subsequently, requirements under the Department's NEPA regulations (10 CFR Part 1021) and NEPA Order (DOE Order 451.1B) to document and post online its categorical exclusion (CX) determinations involving classes of actions listed in Appendix B to Subpart D of 10 CFR Part 1021. Visit the DOE NEPA site to learn more.

To easily find DOE CX determinations, including those from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), search the database.

You can also read the Golden Field Office's NEPA categorical exclusion determinations at the site's Reading Room.
