Masterclass

MANAGING THE PERMIT ACQUISITION PROCESS

[Objective]: Permit acquisition is often the most critical aspect of a submarine cable project, but it is also one of the most challenging with many opportunities for delays. The success of a submarine cable project is dependent on the ability of Owners and Suppliers alike to obtain Permit in Principles and Operational Permits to ensure a smooth implementation and installation schedule. This masterclass aims to provide insights into country-specific permitting requirements, key factors of successful permit acquisition and best practices in managing the permitting process.
