Project proponents must notify the Australian Industry Participation (AIP) Authority when they start planning a major project.

Complete the AIP Notification Form [137KB DOCX] and send it to aip@industry.gov.au.

This must happen when the earliest of the following events occur:

  • The project concept design begins.
  • A project proponent starts an environmental assessment.
  • A project proponent enters into a contract with another person to carry out an environmental assessment of the project.
  • The raw materials for the project are estimated.
  • The utility consumption for the project is estimated.

At any other time a proponent becomes aware their project may be a major project they must notify the AIP Authority within 14 days using the AIP Notification Form [DOCX 137KB].

The notification ensures the AIP Authority is aware of the project and can discuss with you:

  • the project timeframe (including the trigger date)
  • AIP plan requirements
  • when to submit the draft AIP plan for approval

You must notify the AIP Authority if there is a change in project proponent/s or if the project is discontinued, cancelled or postponed.

Next step

After you notify the AIP Authority of your project, the next step is to prepare and submit your AIP plan.
