Can an Environmental Authority be transferred?

Prior to taking over an existing business it is recommended that a Health Search Application be submitted to Council’s Environmental Health Services to confirm there is a current Environmental Authority (EA) and to ensure the existing operator is complying with approval conditions.

Please note: The most important part of the transfer application is to demonstrate that the proposed new holder of the EA is registered as a suitable operator. If it is determined during the assessment of the transfer application that the proposed holder is not a registered suitable operator Council will refuse the application.
