In this review, EPA and DSE have examined the framework for statutory policies – State Environment Protection Policies (SEPPs) and Waste Management Policies (WMPs) – under the Victorian Environment Protection Act 1970 (EP Act). This review proposes reforms to deliver a much simpler, streamlined and accountable statutory policy framework that will support industry and government agencies to act to prevent pollution and protect the environment. The review recommends actions that will simplify and clarify the focus of statutory policy and improve implementation and accountability, links with other statutory systems, and readability and accessibility.
