Review of the self-assessable vegetation clearing codes

The Minister for Natural Resources and Mines commissioned an independent technical review of the self-assessable vegetation clearing codes to ensure they are achieving the intended objective and to recommend improvements.

The outcomes of the review (PDF, 1.6MB), conducted by Cardno, were presented to government and stakeholders.

The self-assessable vegetation clearing codes will continue to be available to manage low-risk clearing activities and they will be amended to align with the latest scientific information.

Draft revisions of the existing self-assessable codes are currently being developed and will be released for public comment in stages through to 2017.
