Assessment Bilateral Agreements
There is increased awareness of the obligations under the EPBC Act and greater consistency and coordination in the granting of environmental assessment requirements for the Commonwealth and NSW. The review also identified some aspects of the functioning of the agreement that could be improved. The NSW bilateral agreement (agreement) streamlines the assessment process for major projects for which NSW and the Australian government require environmental approvals. It is manufactured under the Commonwealth`s Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC). As part of the agreement, the NSW Government assesses development applications on behalf of the Australian Government. The Australian Government remains the decision-maker for the approval of the EPBC Act, taking into account the assessment report prepared by NSW`s Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. . . .
