NRF Consultation


The NRF comprises a series of documents that were developed and released in stages over a 5 year period, inviting comment and feedback.
From November 2018 to March 2019, the complete package of documents was made available for the final consultation prior to completing the framework.

National Roadshow – February 2019

In February 2019, CRC CARE conducted a national roadshow on NRF across all eight Australian capital cities to encourage and facilitate end-user input during the public consultation period (November 2018 to 31 March 2019).

Organised in collaboration with State and Territory environmental protection agencies, each Roadshow session included (click on links to download the presentations):

The roadshow meetings were attended by around 300 people from a range of agencies and organisations involved with contaminated sites (as well as interested members of the broader public), including:

  • State and Commonwealth government agencies (environment, health, infrastructure, defence and planning)
  • local governments
  • consultants, including auditors
  • construction
  • health and safety
  • airports
  • petroleum and mining industry
  • law firms
  • universities.

Participant numbers were highest in the larger cities, and those in the smaller jurisdictions were proportionately high. The engagement during the presentations indicated strong support for the NRF, and there was keen interest to see it finalised and made available
