Environment Protection Authority


The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is South Australia’s independent environment protection regulator. We protect, restore and enhance the environment through the risk-based regulation of pollution, waste, noise and radiation.

We work closely with industry, the community and government to protect our unique natural environment while supporting economic growth and improving wellbeing.

Visit ‘Our work’ for more information about how we go about this.

We administer the Environment Protection Act 1993 and the Radiation Protection and Control Act 1982, as well as developing guidelines and codes of practice.
