You will require this accreditation if you intend to act as a Biodiversity Assessor. An accredited Biodiversity Assessor assesses the likely impact on biodiversity at development sites.
A Biodiversity Assessor must conduct these evaluations according to the Biodiversity Assessment Method, and will publish the results of the assessment in a Biodiversity Assessment Report.
Reports prepared by an Accredited Biodiversity Assessor will contain information on how the proposed development will minimise harm, what harm may be categorised as serious or irreversible, and the offset obligation that would be required to offset the biodiversity impact of the development (expressed in terms of biodiversity credits).
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
