Victoria’s New Duty To Notify Of Land Contamination

Victoria’s New Duty To Notify Of Land Contamination

The new environmental protection regulatory framework that is slated to commence in Victoria on 1 July 2021 is a risk-based, preventive framework. It is underpinned by a number of duties, including a new mandatory duty to notify the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) of 'notifiable contamination'.

This duty is designed to reduce the risk of harm to human health and the environment by ensuring the EPA is aware of higher-risk contamination that may warrant EPA's involvement. The duty will impact on landowners, occupiers and contractors in a number of unique and significant ways.

The final version of the regulations have now been released, which means that now is the time to prepare your organisation and your clients for the commencement of the new framework.

This webinar will provide an overview of the new duty and outline how to prepare for its commencement.
