Maritime Terrestrial Zone

Review the technical components included in the Concessions Dossiers sent by the coastal municipalities so ICT can issue an institutional endorsement for the concession to be subsequently entered into the Public Registry, using information from the master plan in force and other official information sent to ICT.

Use systems designed for Concession Dossier review processes, use specialized software to perform national planning tasks, including Geographic Information Systems for coastal zones and the country’s interior; use Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and AutoCAD.

Furthermore, this section includes the Law on Maritime-Coastal Zones, Law No. 6043 and its Regulation.
