Policies and legislation underpin Tasmania’s environmental management and pollution control systems.
A range of Acts and regulations are supported by State Policies and Environment Protection Policies, while National Environment Protection Policies also provide national consistency across a range of matters.
We have cooperative arrangements with other agencies and organisations to ensure clarity about roles and responsibilities such as:
Memoranda of Understanding with the Local Government Association of Tasmania (LGAT); Tasmania Fire Service; Forest Practices Authority and DPIPWE;
Managing marine oil and chemical spills via TasPlan; and
Helping to clean up litter and dumping with land managers through the Litter and Dumping Management System (LaDMS).
