Improved transparency in environment plan submissions

Article published in the Regulator | Issue 3: 2017

NOPSEMA now requires that titleholders provide more information about their EP for inclusion on our website. This will result in greater transparency for stakeholders using NOPSEMA’s website to identify those activities that are of interest to them. Titleholders are now required to provide a map that clearly shows locations, activities and features referred to in the EP, including nearest coastal areas, environmentally sensitive locations, Commonwealth marine reserves, relevant zoning and state, Territory, Commonwealth and international boundaries.

The Making submissions to NOPSEMA guideline (GL0225) and accompanying EP submission cover sheet (FM1257) have been updated to reflect these changes. To access the revised documents visit www.nopsema.gov.au/ environmental-management/environment-resources/
