Environmental investigations (Mining offences)

There are a number of statutory instruments which create a platform for environmental investigations to be conducted into the operations of businesses and companies.

It is important that when faced by an environmental protection regulator, you and your company are aware of the powers that the regulator has to access and review your operations.

In Queensland businesses and individuals have legal obligations to control and manage the impact of their operations on the environment.  The range of environmental offences is broad and the penalties can be destructive to the activities of companies.
