What it contains

As an independent statutory authority under the Environment Protection Act 2017, our regulatory role is to prevent and reduce harm from pollution and waste.

EPA’s Compliance and enforcement policy supports our overarching Regulatory strategy 2020-2025 and sets out our approach to applying Victoria’s new legislative framework to our compliance and enforcement decisions. It also aims to provide clarity on how we will exercise our regulatory powers.

This draft policy covers:

  • EPA’s compliance and enforcement approaches for supporting and directing compliance
  • our principles and criteria for decision-making, including the consideration of risk, and behaviour and motivations for compliance.
