Part 2                 National environment protection goal

11            Goal for this Measure

                 The national environment protection goal of this Measure is to assist in achieving the desired environmental outcomes set out in clause 12 by providing a basis for ensuring that controlled wastes which are to be moved between States and Territories are properly identified, transported, and otherwise handled in ways which are consistent with environmentally sound practices for the management of these wastes.

12            Environmental outcomes for this Measure

                The desired environmental outcomes for this Measure are to minimise the potential for adverse environmental and human health impacts associated with the movement of controlled waste.

Part 3                 National environment protection guidelines

13            Features for the establishment of a system for the movement of controlled wastes

                 The Council provides the following guidance on possible means for achieving the desired environmental outcomes:

          Licensing and mutual recognition

                 (a)   Each participating State or Territory, where it is the jurisdiction of origin, should ensure that the movement of controlled waste from its jurisdiction to or through another participating State or Territory should be subject to a licence having sufficient control over the carriage of that waste to enable agreement to mutual recognition between participating States or Territories;

                 (b)   Participating States and Territories should agree to recognise, for the purpose of the movement of controlled waste between states and territories only, the licence issued by the jurisdiction where the transporter is established for business purposes;

          Prior Notification and Consignment Authorisations

                 (c)   Each participating State and Territory should ensure that a producer intending to move controlled wastes to another jurisdiction obtains a consignment authorisation from an agency of the jurisdiction of destination, or from a facility delegated by that agency, prior to the movement of such wastes;

                 (d)   The participating State or Territory of origin and destination should ensure that, prior to a consignment authorisation being issued consultation is undertaken, wherever necessary, to determine the appropriateness of issuing a consignment authorisation;

                 (e)   In consideration of a completed application for a consignment authorisation, each participating State and Territory should take certain matters into consideration.  These should include, but not be limited to:

                        (i)    whether the facility to which the controlled wastes are directed is appropriately licensed or approved by the agency in the participating State or Territory of destination to receive the controlled waste; and

                        (ii)   relevant environmental protection policies and legislation of participating jurisdictions which will assist in meeting the desired environmental outcomes.

Explanatory Note:

The policies and legislation may include those relating to the generation, transport, treatment or disposal of controlled waste.

          Waste Tracking

                 (f)   Each participating State or Territory must ensure that all controlled wastes transported in accordance with this Measure are accompanied by the following information:

                        (i)    for a producer—the information specified in Part 1 of Schedule B;

                        (ii)   for a transporter—the information specified in Part 2 of Schedule B;

                        (iii)  for a facility operator—the information specified in Part 3 of Schedule B, completed upon acceptance of the waste.

          Obligations

                 (g)   Each participating State or Territory should ensure that the:

                        (i)    producer provides relevant information as set out in part 1 Schedule B;

                        (ii)   transporter carries information as described in parts 1 and 2 Schedule B when transporting controlled waste;

                        (iii)  facility operator provides information described in part 3 Schedule B as required by participating States or Territories;

                        (iv)  agency, or facility delegated by an agency, in the participating State or Territory of destination issues, or refuses to issue, a consignment authorisation within 5 working days following the receipt of a completed application;

                        (v)   the agency or delegated facility should provide an explanation to the applicant of the reason for refusal of a consignment authorisation consistent with its obligations under relevant State or Territory legislation.

          Maintenance of records

                 (h)   Each participating State or Territory should ensure that records of the data generated by the tracking system in relation to requirements which are contained in Schedule B, are kept for a period of not less than 12 months.

          Furnishing of information to Council

                 (i)    In order to facilitate annual reporting on the implementation and effectiveness of the Measure, as required by section 23 of the Commonwealth Act and corresponding sections of the State and Territory NEPC Acts, the relevant agency of each participating State and Territory should provide collated summary information on the:

                        (i)    movement of controlled waste into each jurisdiction, indicating jurisdiction of origin, waste code and quantity of waste;

                        (ii)   level of discrepancies (eg non‑arrival of a consignment) as a percentage of total authorised controlled waste movements; and

                        (iii)  benefits arising from the implementation of the Measure.

14.           Failure to provide information, or giving false or misleading information

                 Council envisages that, where a producer, transporter or facility operator does not furnish information required to an agency of the relevant participating State or Territory or provides false or misleading information, enforcement action will be taken by that jurisdiction in accordance with the following:

                 (a)   the nature of the offence, including the intent of the offender and whether it is a repeat occurrence; and

                 (b)   the effectiveness in achieving the desired outcome.

15.           Confidentiality

                 Council envisages that all participating States or Territories shall respect commercial confidentiality of facility operators, transporters, and producers, and that for any claim for confidentiality the jurisdiction will endeavour to apply the following principles:

                 (a)   that claims will only be considered if they involve either commercially sensitive information or issues of national security;

                 (b)   that the onus of substantiating a claim for confidentiality will rest with the producer, transporter or facility operator;

                 (c)   claims for confidentiality will be assessed:

                        (i)    by the Commonwealth on the ground of national security, within the legislative framework existing in the Commonwealth at the time, including the Freedom of Information Act 1982 where applicable; and

                         (ii)    by the appropriate participating State or Territory on the ground of commercial sensitivity, in accordance with the legislative framework existing in that State or Territory at the time.
