One of the important outcomes from the 10th World Congress on Environmental Health was the drafting of the Brisbane Environmental Health Charter. Towards the closing of the Congress delegates signed an in principle agreement to develop and implement the Charter. As the host organisation, Environmental Health Australia (EHA), agreed to undertake a consultation process to complete the draft for presentation to the IFEH. Members are invited to provide comment on the attached draft to Dr Jim Smith, National President of EHA by 30 September. Comments can be e-mailed for Dr Smith at
