Incidents involving new organisms

Requirement to report incidents

The Environmental Protection Authority is required to monitor and report on the effectiveness of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act. One of the ways we do this is by recording and reporting on incidents involving hazardous substances and new organisms. The HSNO Act also allows us to conduct inquiries into any incident.
