View the Fees and Charges for the 2019 - 2020 Financial Year

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.
