Fees prescribed are:
- annual permit fees for environmentally relevant activities regulated by the State Government;
- fees for environmental assessments conducted by the EPA Board;
- fees for environmental improvement programmes;
- fees for environment protection notices; and
- miscellaneous fees.
The annual fee structure consists of two parts: a fixed component and a variable fee component. This fee structure aims to improve cost recovery and to encourage permit holders to take greater responsibility for environmental management.
A partial remission of annual fees is available to eligible permit holders that have a sound compliance record and meet certain other requirements, in accordance with regulations 9 and 10 of the General Fees Regulations. Requirements for fee remissions are described in the Annual Fee Remission Guidelines.
