What it contains

The Environment Protection Act 2017 (the Act) prohibits certain persons from engaging in particular activities regulated by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA, the Authority). EPA also considers an applicant’s status as a prohibited person (PP) when it makes its determination of a fit and proper person (F&PP) assessment.

This questionnaire sets out the principal factors EPA considers to determine if a person is a prohibited person. EPA takes the definition of a prohibited person as having the same meaning as under Section 88 of the Act.
