Compliance and Enforcement Policy

EPA aims to be an effective regulator and an influential authority on environmental impacts that exercises its statutory authority fairly and credibly. The Compliance and Enforcement Policy articulates EPA’s approach, method and priorities for ensuring compliance with our Acts and carrying out our compliance and enforcement powers. The amendments made in this edition of the policy reflect changes to the Infringements Act 2006 and the introduction of the Fines Reform Act 2014, which take effect 31 December 2017. These changes include the shortened infringement lifecycle, companies becoming eligible for payment plans and the ability to refer an infringement for a payment arrangement with Fines Victoria. This replaces publication 1388.2, published June 2017.
