Environmental authorities register

The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection’s environmental authorities register provides details about licences (environmental authorities) issued for resource activities (mining and petroleum and gas) and prescribed activities issued under the Environmental Protection Act 1994. The environmental authorities include conditions requiring the developments to conduct these activities in an environmentally responsible manner.

Each environmental authority has a unique permit number.
