Preliminary Risk Screen Assessments

Preliminary risk screen assessments (PRSAs) are a new environmental assessment process in Victoria conducted by EPA-appointed environmental auditors under the Environment Protection Act 2017.

PRSAs look for possible land contamination and relate to a site’s existing or proposed future use. PRSAs also:

  • work out whether there’s a need for an environmental audit
  • recommend the scope for an environmental audit.

PRSAs don’t replace environmental audits. Environmental auditors do PRSAs to find out whether there’s a need for more detailed assessment.

Once a PRSA is complete, the auditor will provide you with a statement (letting you know if there will be an environmental audit) and report (a review of the information and findings in the assessment).

By engaging in one of our auditors early in the process, this will ensure any assessment done outside this process meets the auditor’s needs.
