 POLLUTION MONITORING DATA

  

The Protection of the Environment Legislation Amendment Act 2011 (POELA Act) introduced several changes to the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 (POEO Act) including the new requirement under section 66(6) of the POEO Act that holders of an environment protection licence (‘licensees’) make their pollution monitoring data publicly available in a timely manner.

The intention of this new requirement is to improve the general public’s access to information about the environmental performance of licensed facilities. This is in addition to other information that the EPA includes on its public register.
