Bilateral Agreement Nsw Health

Bilateral Agreement Nsw Health

The bilateral agreement between the Commonwealth of Australia and the State of New South Wales on environmental assessment (the bilateral environmental assessment agreement) allows the Commonwealth Environment Minister to rely on certain environmental impact assessment procedures in the State of New South Wales to assess measures under the EPBC Act. The amending agreement also contains expanded provisions allowing proponents to use the NSW Biodiversity Offset Scheme to assess and meet all their biodiversity compensation requirements, including the use of the Biodiversity Conservation Fund. The report was published by the Australian government in August 2017 and outlines the success of the agreement as well as areas where the functioning of the agreement could be improved.
