Combining an Environmental Authority

If you hold a number of environmental authorities, you may apply to combine your separate environmental authorities into one amalgamated environmental authority provided they:
  • Are all held by the same legal entity; and
  • All have the same administering authority.
It is not possible to apply for an amalgamated environmental authority when one of the environmental authorities has not taken effect. That is, you cannot apply for an amalgamated environmental authority at the same time you are applying for an environmental authority for activities that will be part of the amalgamated environmental authority. First you have to obtain the environmental authority and then you can apply separately to amalgamate the environmental authorities.
