COVID-19 and the Review
The EPBC Act Review is closely monitoring the advice from the Australian Government Department of Health in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In line with this advice, Professor Graeme Samuel will not be travelling for review related activities. All scheduled engagements have been moved to teleconference or videoconference where this is possible.
Restrictions on travel and gatherings as a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has implications for how Professor Samuel can engage with stakeholders as the review progresses. We will continue to monitor and assess the situation, with further consultation with stakeholders pursued where possible, and in line with public health advice.
Professor Samuel encourages stakeholders to provide their written submissions, which are due on the 17th April.
At this stage, the timeframes for the review remain unchanged.
