EPBC ACT: Interim Report of the EPBC Act Review and call for public comment
The Australian Government is currently running an Independent review of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act. The response to the discussion paper has been extensive and in order to identify the broad range of significant issues raised in public submission, an interim report has been prepared. The Interim report of the EPBC Act review outlines the major themes raised in public submissions, the consultation process and the Senate committee inquiry.
As part of the review process they are now seeking public comments on the interim report in general and in particular, on a number of specific areas identified in the report. The report is open for public comment until Monday 3 August 2009.
