Victoria’s new Environment Protection Act to control pollution into our air, water and land will come into force next year. The EPA has released draft regulations for public consultation until 31 October. Regulations are critical to how the Act will work in practice. This seminar will help you understand how the regulations will manage air pollution, water issues, climate, and waste, so that you can make a submission.

The session will also give you a brief overview of the Act and how the new general environment duty will operate and will allow time for audience questions.
