Assessment reports

Conservation Assessment Reports for assessments that require the Schedules to be updated are linked to the relevant Final Determination. Other Conservation Assessment reports where the assessment outcome does not change the Schedules are also available.

For species where an assessment by the NSW Threatened Species Scientific Committee (NSW TSSC) began after August 2017, a Conservation Assessment Report using the Common Assessment Method (CAM) has been prepared. If the outcome of the assessment results in a Final Determination to list, delist or change the threat status of species, the Conservation Assessment Report (CAR) is linked to the relevant Final Determination

If a species is assessed as not eligible for listing or a threatened species is reviewed and assessed as requiring no change in threat status, a Final Determination may not be required.

CARs for ineligible species or species requiring no change to threat status after August 2017 will be included as they are developed.
