A gap analysis gives you a legal perspective on any gaps in your management of environmental risk.  Imperative for organisations that are unsure of their legal requirements and expectations of the regulators.  

The upcoming reform of the Environment Protection Act in Victoria necessitates a review as whether your organisation’s existing approach to compliance will be suitable for the post 1July 2020-framework. A gap analysis, which takes into account legal requirements of the new legislation and your existing site management can assist you with identifying areas for priority action.

A gap analysis may also be a valuable tool after business restructures, to new environment managers, and on a periodic basis to ensure your organisation is keeping up to date with contemporary expectations of the regulators and industry peers.
