Licencing and Compliance
Both the Kooragang and Carrington Terminals operate under Environmental Protection Licences (EPL) which are issued and regulated by the NSW Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The Licences outline the expectations placed on Port Waratah in order to minimise our impact on the environment and the community. Port Waratah also operates under a number of development consent conditions issued by the NSW Department of Planning. Documents, monitoring and reporting results in regards to these licences and conditions can be found below.
