Pollution Incident Response Plans

Pollution Incident Response Management Plans (PIRMPs)

In 2012, the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 was amended and the Protection of the Environment Operations (General) Amendment (Pollution Incident Response Management Plans) Regulation 2012 was gazetted. One of the outcomes of this amendment was a requirement for all holders of an environment protection licence to prepare and implement a pollution incident response management plan and make information related to reporting and communicating with the community publicly available.
