Industrial Activities

Under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA), the EPA is Tasmania’s principal regulator of potentially polluting activities. Its role is to ensure that measures are taken to protect, restore and enhance the quality of the environment so that these activities do not have an unacceptable impact on the environment or the community. EMPCA provides for the EPA to set and enforce conditions on Level 2 Activities, being those industrial activities considered to have a high potential for emitting pollutants and/or causing environmental harm.
