Introducing the new Compliance Reporting Post Approval Requirements

 

As part of the Environmental Impact Assessment Improvement Project, the Department has prepared Post Approval Requirements (PAR) documents that will apply to State significant projects where required by the conditions of consent or approval. The Integrated Mining Policy documents may continue to apply to mining projects.

 

Vision

By developing documents that articulate the consent authority’s requirements for State significant projects, the Department aims to achieve a consistent, transparent and documented approach to undertaking post approval activities and monitoring and reporting compliance in NSW.

 

What are the Compliance Reporting Post Approval Requirements?

The Compliance Reporting PAR contains requirements imposed under conditions of consent or approval. It is not a guideline. This means all elements of the PAR need to be complied with unless conditions of consent or approval provide otherwise.

 

The Compliance Reporting PAR has two main components:

  • A Compliance Monitoring and Reporting Program, which contains:
    • a Compliance Monitoring and Reporting Schedule which sets out the required frequency of compliance monitoring and reporting.
    • a Compliance Table which identifies the compliance requirements, sets out the methodology and the type of data / evidence to be collected to assess whether compliance has been achieved.
  • Compliance Reports

Benefits of the Compliance Reporting PAR

  • a defined process.
  • defined timeframes for undertaking compliance reporting.
  • a consistent approach to reporting compliance.

 

Go-live dates

The Compliance Reporting PAR are to be implemented when required under conditions of consent or approval and are available on the Department’s website.
