VIC Info Session on Environment Protection Amendment Bill 18
The Victorian Branch of the Waste Management Association of Australia has arranged for Kate Gavens, Director Environment Protection, DELWP and others to conduct an information session for WMAA members on the Environment Protection Amendment Bill 2018.

It proposes changes to enhance the protection of Victoria’s environment and human health, whilst introducing a more proportionate, risk-based approach to environment protection legislation including:

•        A preventative approach through a general environmental duty

•        A tiered permissioning system to support risk based and proportionate regulatory oversight

•        Significant reforms to contaminated land and waste management

•        Increased maximum penalties

•        Requirements for more environmental information to be publicly available

•        Modernising and strengthening EPA’s compliance and enforcement powers.
