Compliance and Enforcement Policies

​​​​​​Ensuring compliance with legislative requirements can include a range of actions such as education and creating awareness, assisting industry, partnerships and monitoring to non-formal and formal enforcement through investigations, statutory warnings, infringement notices and prosecution.

The EPA Compliance Policy applies to the enforcement of the provisions of EMPCA, subordinate legislation and other legislation administered by the EPA.  Please note that this Policy will be updated as part of an internal review of the EPA's compliance and enforcement framework to support transition to stronger, contemporary compliance and enforcement arrangements.
