Review of the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999
Professor Graeme Samuel AC's 10-year review of the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 appears to be going back to first principles. Amongst other things, it raises the spectre of a general environmental duty, and even questions whether the Commonwealth should be conducting environmental assessments at all. This may lead to wholesale changes to the Act.
Join Brad Wylynko, Partner and Mark Etherington, Special Counsel as they discuss the recently released discussion paper and share an analysis of where the review may be headed.
