Inquiry into the Environment Protection Authority (Victoria)

We welcomed the Independent Inquiry into the Victorian Environment Protection Authority (EPA).

While Victoria was a world leader in introducing the Environment Protection Act in 1970 many of its provisions have fallen behind community expectations and are not well suited to dealing with contemporary environmental issues, particularly climate change. In our view, fundamental reform of the legislation and current policy and practice is required, both to put what is working well on a more up-to-date footing, as well as to address major gaps in our current pollution regulation framework.
