Keep up to date with your environmental compliance obligations across
Australian jurisdictions

This seminar provides a cost-effective and efficient way of learning the latest environmental law developments. It is also designed to ensuring legal risk registers within your Environmental Management System (EMS) are brought up to date. You will learn about key changes and emerging developments in state and federal environmental legislation relevant to environmental aspects and risks of your business operations.


Businesses and organisations need keep up to date with new environmental legislation to avoid costly surprises.

The Environmental Legislative Update webinar helps your businesses achieve this.

Environmental managers and professionals responsible for national compliance will find this course useful to cover your national obligations. The webinar is scheduled to be viewed live over lunch, so you can eat and learn. Also useful for ensuring your ISO 14001 legal registers are up to date and meet auditor’s requirements.
