The Draft Hazardous Materials Environment Protection Policy aims to help people understand regulations that apply to the management of hazardous materials so the risk of adverse impacts to the environment and human health are minimised. Examples of hazardous materials include asbestos, polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) and heavy metals.
How to had YourSay
Hazardous materials are often a necessary part of modern life. The final Hazardous Materials Environment Protection Policy outlines the regulation and management of these materials.
Hazardous materials are used for veterinary treatments, agricultural activities, manufacturing and processing and are often a legacy issue from previous activities and practices.
