These instructions are provided to assist proponents to prepare Impact Reconciliation Procedures (IRP) and Impact Reconciliation Reports (IRR) submitted under Part IV of the Environmental Protection Act 1986. Proponents are encouraged to submit IRPs at referral, noting they must be provided during an assessment by the EPA, or otherwise to comply with an implementation condition under a Ministerial Statement.
These instructions set out the standard submission requirements for the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) to assess and/or approve an IRP or IRR. Templates are provided with the instructions to assist proponents and facilitate an efficient environmental impact assessment process. Proponents are required to follow the supplied templates, unless otherwise agreed with DWER.
