Awaiting further information from proponent (b) 2
(a) The statutory timeframe for the approval process commences with the finalisation of an assessment report and, where necessary, the receipt of a notice from the relevant state/territory stating that the impacts of the action (other than those impacts assessed in accordance with the EPBC Act) have been assessed by the state or territory. Therefore for some proposed actions, although the assessment process is complete, the approval process statutory timeframe cannot commence until such notices from the state or territory are received under section 130(1B).
(b) Where the minister believes, on reasonable grounds, that he or she does not have enough information to make an informed decision whether or not to approve the taking of an action, the minister may request further information under section 132. In these cases the approval process statutory timeframe is stopped until the last of the information requested is received (section 130(5)).

(a) The statutory 90-day timeframe begins after receiving advice from the Threatened Species Scientific Committee. The committee must give its advice to the minister within 12 months of receiving a nomination, or such longer period as the minister specifies, as provided for in section 189(4) of the EPBC Act. In a number of cases in 2004-05 the minister agreed to nominate a longer period for the committee to consider nominations due to the complexity of the scientific issues involved, the unavailability of adequate scientific information to address these, and the need to undertake enhanced public and expert consultation processes.
