How to use this site 

The EPBC Act provides for a public comment period of 10 business days (with no extensions). A decision on whether a proposed action requires approval will be made within 20 business days. The outcome of the decision will be made publicly available on the web site.

Please note that all public comments will be considered by the decision-maker. However, we cannot guarantee that all comments will be acknowledged or responded to.

The following Referrals and Guidelines are published for public comment.

Note: Public comment will be accepted until close of business on the deadline date below. If there are no documents attached please try again later. The documents are available as PDF files.

Please note: Submissions may be subject to release under the Freedom of Information Act 1982, and may be provided to third parties for procedural fairness purposes (also known as natural justice).

Public submissions are not normally confidential, however if you wish your submission to be treated by the department as confidential, please mark it clearly as 'confidential' and provide your reasons for it to be considered as such. The department will use its best endeavours to deal with the submission accordingly but this does not make it automatically exempt from release.
