The Queensland Government will pursue an education-first approach and are committed to working with businesses to achieve the best environmental outcomes, while minimising unnecessary impacts to business.
We understand that some businesses may experience short-term challenges in their transition, such as delays in deliveries or testing. To further assist businesses, the National Retail Association is providing a Transition Support Program which can provide a time-limited pause on enforcement for businesses which provide evidence they are experiencing genuine challenges outside their control, but have a clear plan and commitment to become compliant.
Applications can be submitted below or by contacting NRA.
About the Transition Support Program
The National Retail Association is providing a Transition Support Program (TSP) which offers additional support and can provide a time-limited pause on enforcement action for businesses experiencing genuine challenges, provided they demonstrate a clear plan and commitment to achieving compliance.
The goal of the TSP is to provide extra support for businesses facing short-term challenges in becoming compliant, while meeting the expectations of the Queensland public to reduce impact on the environment in a timely manner. By assisting businesses to exhaust stock and move to more sustainable options, the TSP also aims to reduce unnecessary disposal of stock to landfill.
The TSP is an initiative of the National Retail Association, supported by the Queensland Government.
