Assessment and Management

General Regulatory Process is:

  • Authority notifies and directs the owner, based on Checklist and NES Report (attach)
  • Owner engages suitable tester and cleaner
  • Tester develops and implements Assessment, Clean-up, Validation Plan (based on Attachment 6 or National Guidelines)
  • Assessment (directed sampling) only for T2s because of possible heavy or unusual contamination
  • Cleaning is usually water/detergent for related horizontal hard surfaces, ventilation systems, & soft furnishings
  • Validation is sampling showing < 0.5ug/100cm2 (meth)

eho tips
EHO Tips
  • Only LGs with multiple clan labs may need to know the Guidelines. Those LGs and Dept Housing may wish to develop their own Guidelines-based material
  • Other LGs may only need to be aware of Guidelines & the possible need for action
  • Contact EHD for advice whenever, including if unfamiliar with the Guidelines or for complex, challenging or remote sites
  • The Guidelines are conservative & generic, & other agreed site specific management options may be possible
  • The listed testers will know what they are doing
in conclusion
In Conclusion
  • Process simpler than it seems
  • Notifications will generally be infrequent
  • Much of the work will be done by others
  • DOH is doing everything it can to help
  • Any efforts you make will be an improvement
