Under proposed amendments to the WA Mining Act, proponents undertaking activities approved via a Mining Proposal and all holders of mining leases and miscellaneous licences will need to have an Environmental Management System (EMS).
This is an important step to facilitate a regulatory approach that is less prescriptive and focused on producing good environmental outcomes. The Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) approach will ensure all proponents and prospective licensees have a structured approach to planning via a risk-based system.
