Umwelt increases it’s number of Accredited Assessors for BioBanking, BioCertification and FBA

Umwelt is pleased to announce that another four members of our ecology team are now accredited BioBanking, FBA and BioCertification Assessors. The newly-accredited Allison Riley, Amy Nelson, Bill Wallach and Shaun Corry make eight accredited assessors in Umwelt’s Newcastle Office and will assist us to continue to deliver in the major project and BioBanking space.

As part of the biodiversity legislation reforms in NSW, the proposed Biodiversity Conservation Act will require all substantial ecological assessments to use a modified version of the BioBanking Methodology (to be called the Biodiversity Assessment Method or BAM) to calculate credits for biodiversity impacts and offsets. Having eight experienced Assessors means Umwelt is well-placed to implement the methodology in a proficient manner once it goes live.

For further detail on our Accredited Assessors and our BioBanking services, or for comprehensive feedback on how the new NSW biodiversity legislation might affect the project development process in NSW please contact Travis Peake, National Ecology Leader on 1300 793 267 or

Coming soon: Umwelt is preparing a comprehensive web page to highlight our BioBanking credentials and experience.
