QLD | What information is recorded on the Environmental Management Register?

The Environmental Management Register (EMR) is a land use planning and management register. Land that has been or is being used for a notifiable activity is recorded on the EMR by the QLD Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. The EMR provides information on current and historical land use, including whether the land has been or is currently used for a notifiable activity, or has been contaminated by a hazardous contaminant. These sites are considered 'low risk' to human health or the environment under the current land use. Entry on the EMR does not mean that the land must be cleaned up or that the current land use must cease.
