Abstract

Why seek to apply the new Act?

When the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Cth) (EPBC) commenced on 16 July 2000 there were projects with potential environmental impacts around the nation that were somewhere along the path through proposal, assessment, discussion and approval or disapproval. Whether the new Act is to apply to them, or whether the Environment Protection (Impact of Proposals) Act 1974 (Cth) still provides the applicable assessment regime will interest many involved in these projects. The transitional provisions for the introduction of the EPBC Act are to be found in the Environmental Reform (Consequential Provisions) Act 1999 (Cth).
