Major industries are those that generate large volumes of waste, discharge high volumes of emissions or treated effluent, store large volumes of chemicals or hazardous materials or are large energy generators. Many of these sites will have existing EPA licence conditions and may already be identified as major hazard facilities. This may also include some of the large manufacturers that are ceasing or reducing their operations in Victoria and have the potential to leave considerable environmental legacies from past operations.
In 2014–15 EPA will inspect a number of major industry sites, both licensed and unlicensed, across a range of industries. These inspections will have a strong focus on the environmental management systems that underpin operations, the efficacy of environmental monitoring programs, and the performance and adequacy of environmental controls consistent with the risks of that industry and any relevant State environment protection policies. The inspections will takes an audit-based approach.
