Temporary emissions licences

A temporary emissions licence (TEL) temporarily allows the release of a contaminant into the environment, in response to an unforeseen event such as a flood or bushfire.

This portal includes TELs associated with environmental authorities or transitional environmental programs, as required under section 540(1) of the Environmental Protection Act 1994.

This includes:

  • all versions of TELs
  • the last version of any TEL that has been suspended or cancelled.

For further information relating to TELs, please refer to temporary emissions licences on the Business Queensland website.
