  • How does EPA protect my data?

    EPA values and respects the privacy of those who use the EPA Interaction Portal, and protects the personal and sensitive information collected through the Portal.

    We use technology and security policies, rules and measures to protect the personal information we collect, including from unauthorised access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction and accidental loss.

    To protect the sending of sensitive personal and business information to EPA we have implemented Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt transactions.

    For more information please see EPA’s privacy policy.

  • How can I ensure my data is secure?

    To submit and maintain information through the Portal, you must have a registered, password-protected account. EPA confirms all requests for business accounts, to ensure that only users whose accounts are associated with an organisation can view its information.

    When you first log in to the Portal you may be prompted to reset your password. We recommend you choose a password that is unique and not easy to guess. It should contain a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters.

    Please log out of the Portal after each session. The ‘Log off’ prompt is in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
