Environmental Management and Monitoring

Environmental Management and Monitoring Plan auditing and continual compliance

The Mindarie Regional Council operations a licenced facility under a Department of Environmental and Water Regulations, Part V licence.  This licence is audited annually against how we operator our site. This audit process is necessary to:
  • ensure that MRC continues to comply with its licence requirements;
  • ensure the ongoing compliance with MRC’s environmental site management plan;
  • assess the effectiveness of the environmental system and provides improvements to management, with regard to Statutory compliance and performance;
  • identify additional areas of risk improvement opportunities; and
  • provide the organisation with feedback to facilitate ongoing development and implementation of our operations.
Particular MRC environmental management strengths identified during a recent audit included:
  • regulatory compliance audits;
  • environmental awareness/induction process;
  • employee and contractor awareness of environmental aspects/impacts, etc;
  • chemicals (separation of dangerous goods);
  • management of cultural heritage areas;
  • management of dieback affected areas; and 
  • community consultation and education.
