Draft guideline: Air emissions

This draft guideline sets out our information requirements for the analysis of air emission impact for prescribed premises.
Last updated:

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation published for consultation this draft air emissions guideline for prescribed premises regulated under Part V of the Environmental Protection Act 1986.

The draft guideline applies to all applications for a works approval or licence under Part V of the Act that include an identified air emission component. It provides applicants with further guidance on:

  • how the department assesses air emissions;
  • the information to include for applications that involve air emissions;
  • when a detailed analysis and air emission modelling is required; and
  • when air emissions are considered insignificant.

We invited feedback on the draft guideline from October 2019 to January 2020.
