National Environmental Protection Council annual report 2 0 1 0 2 0 1 1190 SA M O V E M E N T O F C O N T R O L L E D W A ST E B E T W E E N S TA T E S A N D T E R R IT O R IE S South Australia Report to the NEPC on the implementation of the National Environment Protection (Movement of Controlled Waste between States and Territories) Measure for South Australia by the Hon. Paul Caica MP, Minister for Environment and Conservation, for the reporting year ended 30 June 2011. PART 1 IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NEPM AND ANY SIGNIFICANT ISSUES The South Australian Environment Protection Authority (SA EPA) administers the implementation of the measure. The measure operates as an Environment Protection Policy in South Australia pursuant to provisions of the Environment Protection Act 1993 (the Act). It is primarily implemented through conditions attached to an Environmental Authorisations, in accordance with the Act. In South Australia, waste producers, transporters and operators of waste facilities are required to complete Waste Transport Certificates where necessary, apply for a consignment authorisation for the transport and receipt of controlled waste into or out of South Australia. Information received from Waste Certificates and consignment authorisations enables the SA EPA to reconcile wastes transported against wastes received. It also enables the SA EPA to compile summary information of the type and amount of wastes moved, in accordance with the measure. PART 2 ASSESSMENT OF NEPM EFFECTIVENESS The implementation of the Measure continues to provide a medium for consultation and communication with other jurisdictions in regard to waste management. The Measure also provides the waste industry with clear requirements for the transport of waste into and out of South Australia. In addition it enables the Environment Protection Authority to ensure that controlled wastes entering South Australia are transported and treated in a manner that minimises the potential for adverse impacts on the environment or human health.
