For business and industry
The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is your primary government contact for all the requirements associated with NSW environmental regulation. For example, we provide information and services in regard to environment protection licences, public registers of regulatory information, compliance auditing, your duty to report pollution incidents and the requirements for publishing monitoring data. We can provide advice about any aspect of compliance with environmental legislation.
We consult widely with business, industry, all levels of government and the community to inform, review and enforce NSW environmental regulations and to help achieve the best possible environmental outcomes for New South Wales: Healthy Environment, Healthy Community, Healthy Business.
