The process to submit complaints about the conduct of an EPA authorised officer.
The client engages an auditor to conduct a 53V audit and the auditor notifies EPA of their appointment within seven days. The pre-audit phase involves the client and auditor defining and agreeing on the audit objectives and scope. The objectives must include consideration of risk to the environment, water, substance or noise. The scope should identify the activity being audited, the relevant segment of environment and uses to be considered, and the audit criteria.
A risk assessment can also be conducted to refine the audit scope to focus on issues of concern and/or assess the risk of harm to beneficial uses.
