EPBC Act Policy Statement
About this policy statement
The black-eyed susan is listed as a vulnerable species under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). Vulnerable species are a matter of national environmental significance. This policy statement is intended to provide guidance to proponents on the need to refer an action to which the EPBC Act applies.
The key elements of this policy statement were developed during an expert workshop with scientific experts, state threatened species officers and environmental consultants. The policy statement has been available for public comment and where appropriate changes have been made.
This policy statement should be read in conjunction with Significant impact guidelines 1.1 - matters of national environmental significance.
There may be other EPBC Act policy statements which provide further guidance.
The policy will be updated as substantial new information becomes available. If you have any new research or information on the black-eyed susan which can contribute to future policy revisions, please forward it to:
