Consultation in the course of preparing an Environment Plan guideline

Closed 15 Mar 2023

Opened 15 Dec 2022


Following the Federal Court decision in Santos NA Barossa Pty Ltd v Tipakalippa [2022] FCAFC 193, NOPSEMA has developed a guideline on how the decision will be applied to the assessment of environment plans.

This guideline will be published for immediate use, noting that further considerations may arise as assessments are undertaken and revisions may be required. The guideline will be open for feedback for three months and updated based on that feedback.

Interested stakeholders are encouraged to review the guideline and provide feedback by 15 March 2023.
