Queensland Contaminated Land Procedures Set to Change

The former Newman Government’s efforts to reduce ‘green’ tape in Queensland are expected to come into effect in mid-September with the enactment of the Environmental Protection and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2014. The changes will make it mandatory for Contaminated Land Investigation Documents (CLIDs) to be certified by an approved Auditor before submission to the Department of Environmental and Heritage Protection (DEHP).

The certification process will improve the efficiency of developing contaminated sites by ensuring any contamination has been appropriately managed or remediated.

The law firm, Broadley Rees Hogan, recommends selecting an auditor early in the due diligence stage of site acquisition.
