You will require this authorisation if you intend to undertake any activity in the Antarctic Region or any activities involving marine organisms in the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCALMR) Area, the area south of 60 degrees South. These activities must have no significant or lasting impact on the environment, including flora and fauna.
Before any activity commences in the Australian Antarctic Territory or the CCALMR Area, an environmental impact assessment must be submitted and authorised. Authorised activities may then be subject to other licences, the need for which will vary according to the type of activity to be undertaken.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
