Notification to the Chief Officer
A notification should be completed by the operator of a dangerous goods site that is not a classified major hazard facility if:
- the operator intends to store or handle more than the critical quantity of Schedule 1 substances on site
- more than the critical quantity of Schedule 1 substances is present on site and the operator intends to implement a notifiable change.
Important note: A notifiable change is defined in regulation 15(1) of the Dangerous Goods Safety (Major Hazard Facilities) Regulations 2007. It includes a significant change to plant, processes or substances, or the layout of the site.
The notification will be assessed to determine whether the Chief Officer will classify the site as a major hazard facility (MHF).
