Landholder consent is required for the legal right to implement a project on their property – this is done by signing the Expression of Interest (EoI) and Consent form. The EoI and Consent needs to be signed by all landowners, proprietors as seen on the Land Title. If a Company owns the property, the EoI and Consent will need to be signed by either two Company Directors or one Director and the Company Secretary. When a correctly filled EoI and Consent is received, with all landholders and Land Titles listed, registration of the soil carbon project can commence.
The AgriProve Portal
Fields accessible under ‘My Profile’ are used to populate the Expression of Interest and Consent form. If you need to change any field, please navigate to ‘My Profile’ to do this. Don’t forget to save your data entry regularly to make sure you do not lose any information.
Navigate to the ‘EoI and Consent Page’ to view your completed EoI and Consent Form. Please print, sign and save the form to your Portal once completed. You may need to customise the page margins when printing the EoI and Consent. We recommend a margin of 15mm Top, Bottom, Left and Right. Please let the AgriProve team know once you have completed this form – email firstname.lastname@example.org
Your portal profile will be created against the primary contact or primary land holder. At this time, we have provided for 2 land holders to provide their details. Should there be greater than 2, please let the AgriProve team know. The name listed as the primary contact will be shown as ‘Landholder 1’.

Please nominate the new activities which will be implemented after the soil carbon project is registered – new mechanism to build soil carbon must be implemented across the whole project area. Many techniques may be used to achieve this. If you are unsure which new mechanism you will be using, please talk with us. An Emissions Reduction Fund project (including projects that upgrade or expand current practices) must not have started before it has been registered with the Clean Energy Regulator, unless the method covering the project specifies otherwise. This is because the Emissions Reduction Fund is not intended to support projects that are already underway without support from the Emissions Reduction Fund. Applicants are required to provide evidence which satisfies the Clean Energy Regulator that the project has not begun.
