EPA is Victoria’s environmental regulator, but we don’t protect the environment on our own. Businesses, other government organisations and the Victorian community all have a duty to protect the environment.  

We believe effective engagement makes us a proactive, responsive and strong environmental regulator. It allows us to deliver the services and products that the Victorian community wants.

Our new Regulatory communications and engagement policy (publication 1929) sets out our approach to communications and engagement in our regulatory activities from 1 July 2021. It covers the principles and factors that guide how we communicate and work with people, and how we expect people to communicate and engage with us.
