Code of Practice for Managing the Beneficial Reuse of Acid Sulfate Soil Materials on Development Sites
This Code of Practice (CoP) sets out best management practices for the beneficial re-use of acid sulfate soil material on development sites (receiving site) other than where it originated (source site). It is intended that developers can use the CoP for assessing, on a site-specific basis, whether excavated acid sulfate soil (ASS) materials can be considered suitable for reuse on the receiving site.
Asbestos is a health hazard driven by fibres in the air. The NZ Guidelines for Assessing and Managing Asbestos in Soil takes the New Zealand industry step by step through the process of identifying, assessing and managing asbestos in soil. The guidelines provide a practical approach for industry practitioners (consultants, contractors and regulators) that is specific to NZ – our soils, climate, lifestyle, history and regulations.
Download the Guidelines here. Please note: These guidelines are currently under review by the ALGA Asbestos Interest Group.
The purpose of this paper is to present a summary of the key issues which ALGA agrees should be prioritised to develop more consistent and sustainable management of asbestos in soil (ASBINS), with proposed actions for consideration by the regulators and other relevant stakeholders.
This is a Voluntary Code of Practice. It is intended to be complementary to the “Clandestine Drug Laboratory Remediation Guidelines” published by the Australian Government in 2011 (AG & ACC 2011)
