Review of Chemical Control Orders

Chemical Control Orders (CCOs) are used by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) under the Environmentally Hazardous Chemicals Act 1985 (EHC Act) to control particular chemicals of concern and limit their impact on the environment. The EPA is undertaking a review of all existing CCOs. It will be a staged approach to enable the EPA to thoroughly assess the adequacy of each order and to determine whether improvements are required. The EPA is inviting public submissions on the current CCOs to inform the review.
