Zieria veronicea subsp. veronicea is a small shrub now known in Tasmania from two small near-coastal sites in the northeast where it grows in heathland and heathy woodland. Fewer than 200 mature individuals are known, all but 8 in one subpopulation. This and the small size of plants place the species at risk of loss from unforseen human activities and chance events. The main threats are frequent low intensity burns that kill post-fire recruits before they set seed and sufficiently replenish the soil seed bank, or the prolonged absence of fire due to mortality and depletion of the soil seed store. Infection with the root rot pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi represents a possible, albeit low threat.

Permit: A permit is required under the Tasmanian Threatened Species Protection Act 1995 to 'take' (which includes kill, injure, catch, damage, destroy and collect), keep, trade in or process any specimen or products of a listed species. Additional permits may also be required under other Acts or regulations to take, disturb or interfere with any form of wildlife or its products, (e.g. dens, nests, bones). This may also depend on the tenure of the land and other agreements relating to its management. ​​​​​
