Regulatory assurance statements

The EPA Board is required to provide the Minister for the Environment with an annual regulatory assurance statement. This summarises:

  • how successful the EPA has been in reducing risks to human health and preventing the degradation of the NSW environment
  • how the level of environmental protection in NSW compares with other Australian jurisdictions
  • how well the industries regulated by the EPA are performing in regard to reducing risks to human health and preventing environmental degradation 
  • the impact these industries have had on the environment
  • how these industries could improve their environmental performance
  • how the EPA could improve its own environmental performance.

For more information see the regulatory assurance statement for 2015–16 in the EPA annual report 2015–16.
