Environmental Guidelines 

Guidelines are policy documents that describe minimum expectations in relation to a particular subject matter that are endorsed by the NT EPA or have been developed by the NT EPA.  These differ from Standards by providing some flexibility in how they are applied.  None the less the NT EPA would expect that any variation from a Guideline would be supported by a well-researched and clear justification.
