Complying with an Environmental Authority

As the holder of an environmental authority in Queensland, you will need to meet certain requirements to comply with your environmental authority. These requirements are in addition to the environmental obligations that everyone must comply with, and include:
  • paying annual fees and submitting annual returns;
  • complying with the conditions on your environmental authority;
  • preparing a plan of operations (for calculating financial assurance).
Council has a range of compliance powers and tools that they can use in the event that a person or activity is not meeting their environmental obligations.
