Schedule 1 changes
Changes have been made to the section of the Environment Protection Act that sets out which activities require authorisation from the Environment Protection Authority.
The amendments to Schedule 1 – Prescribed activities of environmental significance came into effect on 1 June.
The changes update and clarify language to make the schedule easier to understand and apply, and better delineate between different waste-related activities.
They do not affect which activities are licensed or the requirements of those licences, with the exception of fish processing, where an authority will no longer be required for freezing, chilling or packing facilities.
Licence conditions have not changed as a result of these amendments.
