Planning guidelines for hazardous development 

A number of Hazardous Industry Planning Advisory Papers (HIPAPs) and other guidelines such as Applying SEPP 33 and Multi-level Risk Assessment have been issued by the department to assist stakeholders in implementing an integrated assessment process. Following extensive consultation, the guidelines were updated in 2011 to incorporate recent developments in risk assessment and management techniques, land use safety planning and current best practice. Two additional guidelines were also added.
