What is an environmental audit assessment?

The environmental audit system is used by planning authorities, government agencies and the private sector to provide assurance that potentially contaminated land is suitable for its intended use.  Municipal councils regularly request an environmental audit as a planning condition where redevelopment or rezoning of a site to a more sensitive land use is proposed.

A detailed environmental site assessment is undertaken to find contamination that is considered to impact on human and environmental health.  An outcome of finding contamination may include remediation (soil excavation and removal) and validation sampling works to ensure remaining soils and waters are clean.  An accredited environmental auditor independently reviews the environmental works to ensure the site is suitable for the proposed land use.
