Activities suitable for standard applications

Use our forms and fees finder for information on applying for a new environmental authority (EA) or managing your existing EAs.

ERA standards, which include eligibility criteria and standard conditions, have been developed for low risk activities. A standard application process applies. Activities that have an ERA standard are listed below.

If your activity is on the list, you should check that you can meet the eligibility criteria, and comply with the activity's standard conditions.

Note: The ERA standards refer to the Environmental Protection Regulation 2008, which was repealed and replaced by the Environmental Protection Regulation 2019 on 1 September 2019. A reference to the repealed regulation or a repealed provision in the ERA Standards should be read as a reference to the replacement regulation or the corresponding provision in the replacement regulation.
