NOPSEMA consultation and public comment

Providing opportunities for public participation and consultation is an integral part of transparency. This site will help you find and participate in public comment consultations that may be of interest.

Recently updated public comment consultations are displayed below.

It is important to note that the environment plan and offshore project proposals that are ‘open for comment’ have not undergone assessment by NOPSEMA and have been published to NOPSEMA’s website following an administrative check only. NOPSEMA’s formal assessment process will commence when the titleholder or proponent submits their environment plan or offshore proposal following the public comment process.

For guidance on providing effective comments, refer to Consultation on offshore petroleum environment plans and Consultation in the course of preparing an environment plan.
