What it contains

On 1 July 2021, the new Environment Protection Act 2017 came into effect, which changed the way businesses report to EPA. Under the Environment Protection Act 1970, businesses holding EPA licences were required to submit an Annual Performance Statement (APS) by 30 September each year. Submission of these statements is no longer required. Under the new Act, licence holders and some permit holders will be required to provide a Permission Information and Performance Statement (PIPS) when requested by EPA.
