Inquiry into the operation of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999

Under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, the Commonwealth Government is required to conduct a review of the operation of the Act 10 years after its commencement. That review, currently underway, is independent from the Senate committee inquiry. For more information about the independent review, please visit the webpage of the review at: http://www.environment.gov.au/epbc/review/index.html.
