OEH is not the only body which may institute criminal proceedings under the environment protection legislation. Organisations such as the EPA may bring proceedings under legislation administered by the EPA. The OEH Prosecution Guidelines are consistent with the EPA Prosecution Guidelines.
In respect of prosecutions that would be brought in the name of the Environment Protection Authority (EPA), refer to the EPA Prosecution Guidelines.
