ATAP public consultation process
Updates of the Guidelines occur in line with the ATAP work program. When a new or revised piece of guidance has been developed, it is released by the Steering Committee for public comment. Interested parties can provide their comments and/or feedback to:
- The ATAP Secretariat
- Email ATAP@infrastructure.gov.au or GPO Box 594, Canberra ACT 2601.
The publication consultation process is as follows:
- Draft ATAP guidance is released for public comment for a period between 3 to 6 weeks depending on the complexity of the guidance and the time of year.
- Following the closure of the comment period, comments received are reviewed by the ATAP Steering Committee and updates made to the draft guidance as necessary.
- The final draft guidance is then approved by the Infrastructure and Transport Senior Officials Committee.
- The new or updated guidance is then incorporated into the ATAP Guidelines and made available on the ATAP website. Registered ATAP subscribers are then notified of the publication.
