Implementation of General Environment Duty under the Act status update

Over the course of December 2021, the consultants continued to accept industry feedback on the proposed flow charts, with the view of having completed documentation in late January 2022.

At the time of writing, the consultants were still awaiting feedback from EPA on the proposed flow charts.

On 4 January 2022, EPA, through the Engage Victoria website, released two consultation documents with respect to the new contaminated land duties under GED: Duty to Manage and Duty to Notify (The new contaminated land duties: Duty to Manage and Duty to Notify | Engage Victoria)

As part of the finalisation process, these documents will be reviewed to ensure that the proposed contaminated land flow chart is consistent with the released consultation documents.
