The operator of a dangerous goods site must ensure that a written emergency plan for dealing with any dangerous situation associated with the storage and handling of dangerous goods at the site is prepared in accordance with the Dangerous Goods Sites - Emergency Planning Code. Copies of the code can be downloaded from the Resources Safety website.
The emergency plan applies where the quantities stored at the site exceed the relevant quantities specified in the �Manifest Quantity� in Schedule 1 of the Dangerous Goods Safety (Storage and Handling of Non-explosives) Regulations 2007.
If dangerous goods are stored or handled at the site in quantities that are 10 times greater than the manifest quantities, the operator must send to the Chief Officer, in an electronic format approved by the Chief Officer, a
copy of any part of the plan specified in the code.
A copy of the emergency plan must be located at the dangerous goods site and be made available to a Dangerous Goods Officer, the Chief Officer or FESA upon request.
