The Compliance Plan 2017–18 sets out the EPA's compliance priorities for the year.
The Plan aims to
- provide transparency for industry and the broader community about the EPA’s compliance activities
- raise the community’s environmental awareness
- encourage compliance among EPA licensees
- maintain and improve environmental outcomes associated with the activities the EPA regulates.
The Plan does not provide an exhaustive list of all EPA’s compliance activities that will be undertaken during 2017–18. The EPA monitors compliance using various mechanisms, including community and industry reports to Environment Line. These reports provide details of potential environmental impacts and non-compliance. The EPA follows up on all issues and will take immediate action where it is necessary.
