Abstract : The purpose of this research was to develop an Environmental Audit Management Plan (EAMP) tailored to meet the specific requirements of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). The research also examined the resources which would be required to introduce the proposed EAMP into the RAAF. The literature on environmental compliance auditing identifies a number of essential characteristics required for an effective environmental auditing program. These characteristics, in conjunction with the USEPA design guidelines for the development of audit programs for government agencies, were used to guide the development of the RAAF EAMP. Information on Australian environmental legislation, DOD/RAAF policies and regulations, and details of the RAAF Base Tindal Environmental Management Plan were placed within this framework to produce the EAMP. The USAF Environmental Compliance Assessment and Management Program (ECAMP) was also used as a practical example of an existing audit management plan to provide further guidance in the preparation of the RAAF EAMP. To determine what would be required to implement the proposed EAMP, data on the implementation and operation of ECAMP was collected and analysed. From this, estimates of the resources required for the EAMP were prepared.... Environmental compliance, Environmental audit, Royal Australian Air Force, Environmental management.
