EPA’s new website is under construction. It contains links to our previous site while we add information.

EPA provides rules that businesses must follow to manage odour. To minimise odour from your business, use our guidance, resources and case studies.

You must prevent and manage odour if your business:

  • accepts materials that produce odours when your process them
  • makes a product that produces odours
  • treats, processes or disposes of waste.

If someone complains about odour from your business, you should:

  • identify where the smell comes from
  • prevent the odour from happening again.
