Proposed changes to laws and regulations

02 August 2019

So you can have more say in matters of importance to you, we've published our schedule of upcoming public consultations on proposed changes to the laws and regulations we administer.

From time to time, we consult publicly on proposed changes to the laws and regulations we administer. The information gathered informs changes, updates and improvements to matters that are often technical and complex.

You can now see what work of this nature is planned, and indicative timings for when we will be seeking public input.

The first project on our upcoming list is a consultation, opening in late August, on proposals to amend the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act to allow the EPA to make more timely decisions and to better use international information about substances.
