Stefan Fiedler

From 1 July 2021 the reform of the Victoria’s environment legislation will take effect.

The reform of the environment legislation in Victoria has its origins in community, worker and emergency services personnel exposure to health risks from waste and contamination of the environment.

Stefan Fiedler, Principal in the Government, Planning & Environment team, has identified important considerations and provided detailed analysis of the final Environment Protection Regulations and Environment Reference Standard.

This will be of interest to State Government, Local Government, Water Corporations, Industry and anyone who owns, develops and invests in land in Victoria.
