Index of Biodiversity Surveys for Assessments

The Index of Biodiversity Surveys for Assessments (IBSA) is our new online portal that will be launched in 2018.

The portal will be a central index of land-based biodiversity surveys conducted to support environmental assessments by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, Environmental Protection Authority and Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 (the Act).

Proponents submitting referrals, applications and post-assessment compliance documents to these agencies under the Act, such as native vegetation clearing permits, works approvals and licences, significant proposals, schemes and scheme amendments, will be required to submit information to IBSA.

For further information please refer to our information sheet.
