Complying with legislation

The EPA ensures those responsible for managing and remediating contaminated land comply with their legal obligations to improve environmental and human health outcomes.

The EPA leads regulation of significantly contaminated land under the Contaminated Land Management Act 1997 and Contaminated Land Management Regulation 2013.

The EPA Regulatory Policy sits under the EPA Regulatory Strategy and it replaces our prior Compliance Policy and Contaminated Land Compliance Statement.

The Regulatory Policy guides EPA regulatory decisions, in response to non-compliance and environmental or human health issues. It describes many of the tools we use and regulatory actions we may take under each of the eight elements of our regulatory approach, including for contaminated land.
