Industry compliance with the NEPM was high, supported by successful consultation between industry and jurisdictions. A number of compliance audits were conducted by jurisdictions, with NSW reporting no identified compliance issues. Online tracking systems continue to be effective, with the majority of transport certificates now completed correctly, while other processes have ensured waste has been consigned to the appropriate facility. Last year was the first year that controlled wastes received from the Australian Antarctic Division (External Territories) were reported separately. Resulting issues surrounding movement of waste between Tasmania and Antarctica are currently being considered by Tasmania and the Commonwealth. PART 5 REPORTING ON IMPLEMENTATION BY JURISDICTIONS The annexes to this report are in Appendix 1.
