Environmental Authorisations and Agreements

Environmental Authorisations - What are they?

Under the Environment Protection Act 1997 (Section 41A), it is a requirement that certain activities that pose environmental risk call for an Environmental Authorisation. Environmental Authorisations are one of the most important regulatory tools available to the EPA, as they set out conditions for activities carrying with them the greatest environmental risk. Each authorisation can be individually tailored for the activity it authorises, and can impose specific conditions on the conduct of the activity.

Environmental Protection Agreements - What are they?

Environmental Protection Agreements are formal agreements under the Environment Protection Act 1997, between the EPA and people conducting certain activities that pose environmental risks. Environmental Protection Agreements allow scope for business to manage their environmental performance in partnership with the EPA rather than the EPA acting solely as enforcer.
