      EPA is modernising

      EPA welcomes the Victorian Government’s response to the Independent Inquiry into the EPA. The Government’s response embraces the vision for a stronger EPA developed by the Ministerial Advisory Committee in its Independent Inquiry into the EPA report. The recommendations and funding of $162.5 million reaffirm the importance of an effective environmental regulator and provide for an EPA capable of meeting new and future environmental challenges posed by a changing climate, evolving economy and growing population. The announcement includes a major overhaul of Victoria’s legislative framework for environment protection, strengthening EPA’s independence and introducing a new risk-based preventative model for regulation.
