DR MARK JACKSON
MD, Jackson Environment and Planning

Earlier this year sweeping new changes passed the NSW Parliament bringing increased penalties for a range of activities, new regulatory powers for enforcement bodies, and more liability for directors, managers and related entities. For waste industry professionals, environmental protection licence requirements will now increasingly need to be front of mind to avoid both professional and personal consequences.
This session will review what these changes mean across waste industry operations, including what risks professionals and organisations need to be aware of to ensure compliance.
