Request for feedback

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) is undergoing environmental regulatory reform.

To clarify how DWER will carry out its regulatory functions under Part V Division 3 of the Environmental Protection Act 1986, the department is producing emissions guidelines supported by a series of detailed documents and process improvements for more efficient, effective, transparent, consistent and accountable environmental regulation in WA.

The draft Odour guideline for prescribed premises is the first of these, and is designed to guide applicants, licensees, consultants, members of the public and Department staff on the requirements for odour impact analysis.

This guideline sets out DWER’s information requirements for the analysis of odour impact for prescribed premises.

The Department is currently seeking feedback on the draft guideline.
