Performance Audit of Managing compliance with the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) Conditions of Approval: Submission

The NFF's 7 November 2013 submission to the Australian National Audit Office on the Performance Audit of Managing compliance with the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) Conditions of Approval highlighted the difficulty in communicating the EPBC Act to farmers and therefore jeopardising compliance. The NFF has repeatedly called for a better framework from the Department of the Environment to provide more information and enable improved consultation to farmers and those in rural communities. As such, the NFF recommends the establishment of an open dialogue that delivers enforceable conditions able to undergo monitoring, audit and compliance.
