Loss Monitoring To Meet Regulations

UPSS Incident logs

Sourced from www.epa.nsw.gov.au 14/11/2013

Under clause 24 of the UPSS Regulation, the person responsible for a UPSS must ensure that an incident log is maintained which records:

  • actions by anyone acting on their own behalf, rather than at the direction of the person responsible, that have affected, are affecting, or could affect the integrity of the UPSS
  • any unplanned or abnormal incidents, including operational disruptions or equipment failures, that have affected, are affecting, or could affect the integrity of the UPSS.

In accordance with clauses 24 and 26, the incident log must be kept onsite or at a location specified in the EPP and retained for at least seven years from the date the UPSS is decommissioned by the person responsible.

Where the person responsible changes (such as through sale, transfer of ownership of the site or business or contractual changes), all documents must be transferred to the new person responsible, in accordance with clause 27 of the Regulation and the EPP retained onsite.

A Proactive Approach to UPSS

Approximately 30% of the contaminated sites regulated by the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water (DECCW)1 under the Contaminated Land Management Act 1997 (CLM Act) are the result of leaking UPSS.

Contamination from leaking systems can be very expensive to clean up when it goes unchecked for a prolonged period.

A proactive approach to prevent leaks from occurring in the first place is in the interest of both site owners and the general community.
