When the Victorian Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) makes a recommendation in regard to a nomination in accordance with the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 (the Act), a report is prepared outlining that the nomination should either be supported or not be supported and a summary of the evidence supporting it. These reports form the basis for public submissions, in the case of preliminary recommendations, or for the Minister's decision, in the case of final recommendations.
