This standard operating procedure (SOP), written specifically for NSW, does not replace or override any relevant legislation. Its use is subject to applicable legal requirements (including OH&S) operating under any relevant legislation. Adherence to the SOP is a condition of licences to harm flying-foxes issued under section 120 of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.
