An OL is a type of licence is for a prescribed activity(https://www.legislation.vic.gov.au/in-force/statutory-rules/environment-protection-regulations-2021/) in Schedule 1 of the Environment Protection Regulations 2021. Licensed activities require the highest level of regulatory control within the EPA permissions scheme(https://www.epa.vic.gov.au/about-epa/publications/1799-2) (publication 1799 at EPA website). This is due to the potential high risk of harm to human health and the environment.

An operating licence is a type of permission issued by EPA. It is a legal document held by a legal entity, whether a person, a company, a statutory corporation or a municipal council, and contains conditions that regulate the risk of harm to human health and environment from the activity at the OL activity site. These conditions address areas including: risk management, record keeping and reporting, waste acceptance and treatment or disposal, air and water discharges, and noise and odour. This dataset mirrors the operating licence data available on EPA's public register, but may not be up to date due to data transfer processes. For the most up to date data, go to EPA's public register for permissions(https://www.epa.vic.gov.au/about-epa/public-registers/permissions).
