EPA Statements to Media

The EPA regularly responds to media inquiries, issuing statements by the EPA Director. Some of these responses are of particular interest to the community, hence the EPA is providing public access to this information by publishing the responses to media as a news item. Whilst these appear in the news column, they are also listed below.

Active disclosure statements

The EPA is committed to responding to public interest on particular issues and providing an adequate level of transparency for its decisions through information published on this website and broadcasting media releases. In response to public inquiries, the EPA's policy is to release relevent information under Active Disclosure where possible and practical rather than under Assessed Disclosure via the Right to Information Act 2009. Further information regarding the Right to Information process is available on the DPIPWE website. The following information has been provided under Active Disclosure in response to requests from the public, private individuals, non-government, media and politicalicians.
