New 2018 Environmental Protection Bill:

CCF Victoria recently attended an industry briefing session concerning the Victorian Government introducing new environment protection legislation to the Victorian Parliament.

The Environment Protection Amendment Bill 2018 provides the foundation for a transformation of Victoria’s environment protection laws and Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA). It proposes a new approach to environmental issues, focusing on preventing waste and pollution impacts rather than managing those impacts after they have occurred.

The Victorian Government intends this new legislation will take effect from 1 July 2020.
