To ensure proponents provide the necessary information with their request to change an approved proposal under s. 45C of the Environmental Protection Act 1986. A checklist is attached to the instructions.


The purpose of these instructions is to assist proponents to prepare Environmental Management Plans that may be provided at referral, required during an assessment by the EPA, or required as an implementation condition under Part IV of the Environmental Protection Act 1986.

For some of the EPA’s environmental factors there is additional guidance on the development of Environmental Management Plans. Refer to the relevant technical guidance in the EPA’s Framework for environmental considerations in EIA.

This guidance does not cover the preparation of Mine Closure Plans. Refer to the Guidelines for Preparing Mine Closure Plans (DMP and EPA, 2015) when preparing mine closure plans.

The template attached to these instructions provides the structure of the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) and the minimum requirements that the EPA/OEPA needs to assess and/or approve the plan. The EPA expects that proponents follow the EMP template (unless otherwise agreed with the Office of the EPA), so that the EMP is concise.
