Fees and services—Assessment of transitional environmental programs - annual returns and monitoring - hourly rate after the first 2 hrs
A transitional environmental program is a specific program that, when approved, achieves compliance with the Environmental Protection Act 1994 for the matters dealt with by the program by either (a) reducing environmental harm; or (b) detailing the transition to an environmental standard.After the first two hours, assessment of a TEP incurs an hourly rate (the hourly rate does not apply to assessing an amendment application). Assessment includes the annual return process and any inspections or monitoring that may need to occur as a direct result of the TEP. Hours of assessment can be spread throughout the TEP period. Assessment fees will be invoiced with the Notice of approval and subsequently at the annual return date each year.
