  • Member –  practical knowledge of, and experience in, environmental management and expertise in one or more of the following – environmental conservation, natural resource management, air, noise or water pollution, management and prevention of waste, environmental health and social and economic analysis.
  • Deputy member – either with practical knowledge of, and experience in, environmental management in industry, commerce or economic development or practical knowledge of, and experience in, environmental management in local government or expertise in one or more of the following – environmental conservation, natural resource management, air, noise or water pollution, management and prevention of waste, environmental health or social and economic analysis.

Appointments to the EPA Board will be for a period of three years.
