New online submission portal for environment plans

News announcement - Published 13 May, 2016

As part of NOPSEMA's commitment to continuous improvement in the use of digital technology and to reduce regulatory burden on industry, NOPSEMA has developed a new online submission portal for environment plans and financial assurance documents.

The online system is now live and ready to use for an initial trial period of 6 months. Titleholders are encouraged to submit environment plans (new or revisions), financial assurance declarations and financial assurance confirmations using the online forms system at At the end of the trial period, based on the feedback received, NOPSEMA will determine the value of this initiative and whether to continue its investment in this area.

Digital forms eliminate the need for input of redundant or repetitive information and will guide titleholders through each step of the submission process. The system includes guidance on the information required within the forms with links to further information where relevant.

Initial user testing has indicated a substantial timesaving for both titleholders and NOPSEMA through the use of the new online submission portal. If you choose to make a submission online then a cover sheet is not required. Feedback on the positive and negative aspects of this improved regulatory service is welcomed through

Please note that the option to make a submission using the Secure File Transfer system will remain open during the trial period.
