The Environment Protection Authority (‘EPA’) is currently conducting a review of the Environment Protection (Fees) Regulations (the ‘Fees Regulations’).

The Fees Regulations set the fees for licences, works approvals, environmental audits, and waste transport permits. The maximum fee that may be charged by municipal councils for septic tank permits is also set by the Fees Regulations.

A discussion paper outlining the scope of the proposed review and some of the options for potential reform can be accessed: Review of Environment Protection (Fees) Regulations 2001 (PDF file, 396KB)

EPA is seeking your feedback and comments on the review of the Fees Regulations. You can respond to EPA’s online survey, or you may provide your comments to EPA by sending them to:

GPO Box 4395

The feedback period for the discussion paper will be open until 26 January 2011.
