Environment Protection Licences
Transport for NSW or its contractors are required, under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act (1997), to hold Environment Protection Licences (EPLs) for activities listed under Schedule 1 of the Act.
What is an Environment Protection Licence
Environment Protection Licences (EPLs) are issued by the NSW Environment Protection Authority to control the impacts of pollution in NSW.
The holder of each EPL must:
- Comply with all conditions of the EPL
- Develop, annually update and publicly display a Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP)
- Publicly display any monitoring data, where this is required by the EPL.
