New requirements for reporting to the EPA

From 1 July 2017 all statutory reports submitted to the NSW EPA must be prepared or approved by a practitioner that has been certified under either of the following schemes:

  • Site Contamination Practitioners Australia (SCPA); or
  • Contaminated Land Assessment Specialist Certified Environmental Practitioner (managed by the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand – EIANZ).

The EPA’s new requirement covers reports associated with orders made under the Contaminated Land Management Act 1997 such as a:

  • preliminary investigation order;
  • management order;
  • voluntary management proposal;
  • ongoing maintenance order; and/or
  • duty to report contamination.

The EPA considers that the SCPA and EIANZ certification schemes offer a thorough process for certifying contaminated land consultants against an acceptable minimum standard of competency. Geo-Logix employs consultants who have been certified under both schemes. We also have a contaminated land auditor who is certified in NSW, Queensland, NT and the ACT.

Further details are available on the NSW EPA’s website or you can contact Geo-Logix for information.
