Update on application by Chatham Rock Phosphate Ltd

The marine consent process enables the EPA to obtain advice on any aspect of a marine consent application or on an activity that is associated with it. This information is provided to the Decision-making Committee to support the decision-making process.

The EPA commissioned its staff to prepare a report that evaluates the application by CRP. The report is now available on our website.


Fyi - The hearing on the CRP application by the Decision-making Committee is scheduled to start on 25 September with a decision due around 18 December 2014.

The EPA is responsible under the Exclusive Economic Zone and Continental Shelf (Environment Effects) Act 2012 for receiving and deciding on applications for marine consents.
