Only one type of document can be uploaded at a time. When submitting a document you will be asked to enter details about the document including the name, type, whether it is a new or revised document, the applicable condition of consent/approval and whether consultation is required.
If you are submitting a revised document, you must include a tracked change version of the document as well as an unmarked version.
Documents must comply with the Department's general requirements for post approval documents.

Some conditions of consent require you to consult with public authorities or other stakeholders in preparing post approval and compliance documents. You can use the Major Projects Website to complete this consultation with key government agencies. To get started, initiate the lodgement of a document and select the option to consult using the portal.
Once consultation is complete, you will be asked to upload the final version of your document. This document must include a section on how the matters raised during consultation have been addressed. If the conditions of consent require you to consult with public authorities or other stakeholders in preparing the document, this must be complete before you submit the final version of the document to the Department.
All management plans must include a conditions compliance table. This table must identify the relevant conditions of consent and indicate where these conditions have been addressed in the document.
