The contaminated sites guidelines reflect:
- the requirements of the Contaminated Sites Act 2003 and Contaminated Sites Regulations 2006
- the National Environment Protection (Assessment of Site Contamination) Measure 1999 (ASC NEPM) as amended in May 2013
- process improvements developed during the statutory five-year review of the Contaminated Sites Act 2003.
All site contamination reports submitted to the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation must be consistent with the ASC NEPM available from the Federal Register of Legislation. Errata and additional supporting documents and calculators are available from the National Environment Protection Council website.
Further guidance is available in the information sheet Requirements for submission of contaminated sites technical reports.
