Are you confident that you can demonstrate compliance to the environmental Regulators?

The Australian Environment Business Network (AEBN) together with leading environmental management experts, V&C Environmental Consultants and law firm, Guthrie Legal, have developed this practical half day Workshop to provide you with the tools and procedures to enable you to comply and demonstrate compliance to the Regulators and will address how compliance is managed across states. 

With the ongoing focus of strict compliance by Environmental Regulators across Australia, it is imperative that organisations understand their obligations and are able to effectively demonstrate compliance to the Regulators.

Businesses of today are subject to comprehensive regulation and monitoring by one or more Regulators.  Regulators are with an organisation from cradle to grave and understanding how to demonstrate compliance is critical to your business.  If you cannot effectively demonstrate compliance, Regulators have the powers to clamp down on an organisation’s activities and potentially put it out of business.

This comprehensive Workshop will provide practical exercises and will cover the following:



  • Legal framework –
    • Understanding environmental laws –
      • Source of law:  Federal, State, Local laws and common law
      • Managing compliance across all states and territories

    • Legal considerations before embarking on compliance audits

  • Examine case studies of the pitfalls experienced by businesses
  • Compliance
    • What does compliance mean and why comply?
