Robertson, J.T.,-‘Obligations to Notify- a Practical Guide’ (2011/2012) 17 (76) QEPR 53 .
Significantly expanded notification requirements will shortly be inserted by the Natural Resources and Other Legislation Amendment Act (No. 2) 2010 (Qld) (“NROLA no 2 2010”) into the Environmental Protection Act 1994 (Qld) (“EP Act”) and there is a much greater risk that operators could find themselves unintentionally in non-compliance with these complex requirements. This paper discusses the background to the changes, what the new provisions require, practical situations where an operator might face difficulties with the new requirements and finally some suggested steps that would mitigate the risks.
