Compliance Conference

The Environmental Compliance Conference is two full days of practical learning, field trip, exhibition and workshops from renowned experts, focused on practical and tactical solutions to compliance problems and opportunities in New Zealand.

With a focus on the latest practices, tools and strategies from leading industry experts, we aim to deliver practical knowledge and expertise on how to be more effective, efficient and up to date on Environmental Compliance in NZ. We’ll explore next generation compliance tools, improving environmental performance, theories, innovations and practical applications in a New Zealand context.

Presentations will be structured within the following key themes:

  • Compliance and Enforcement

  • Compliance Innovations

  • Legislation changes

  • Pollution Prevention and Incident Response

Conference Postponed

Environmental Compliance Conference has been postponed to 6th - 8th December 2022.

The Environmental Compliance Conference committee has made the difficult decision to reschedule the Environmental Compliance Conference to December 2022. Whilst New Zealand may move into an orange or green status sooner and allow larger gatherings, we cannot predict when this will be. With the conference being so close, it is vital that we plan ahead to ensure there is no negative impact for our event, our delegates or our sponsors.  

We would like to thank all those who continue to support our conference, your councils, your businesses, the managers who sign off on travel forms and of course our sponsors.

The new dates of the 2022 conference are 6th- 8th December 2022. All key details remain the same but given this is the second postponement the programme may be refreshed to ensure all content is up-to-date and of topical interest to our attendees. 

If you have registered to attend ECC, our registration management team will be in touch with you to offer you the opportunity to transfer your registration to the new dates. There is also the option of a refund, but we do hope that you will be able to transfer to the new conference dates and that we will see you in December. 

The committee very much look forward to seeing you all in Christchurch in December and in the meantime will send out a newsletter to update you on what is happening in the industry with all of the reforms on the horizon.

Thank you for your understanding and continuous support.
