Location Compliance Certification

Chemsafety have three Location Compliance Certifiers on the team who are able to help you gain a location compliance certificate for your hazardous substances store.  We are able to certify:

  • Location Compliance Certification classes 2 - 5
  • Certified Handlers classes 6.1A & B
  • Some Stationary Container Systems

What is a Location Compliance Certificate?
Location Compliance Certificates (LCC) were introduced in 2012 by the Environmental Protection Authority.  They are essentially a check by a Compliaince Certifier that your property complies with all the requirements of the HSNO Act in relation to hazardous substances.

Do I need an Location Compliance Certificate (LCC)?
If you store over certain quantities of flammable liquids at your site then you may need a LCC.  Your LCC will be issued for a period of 1 year when the Compliance Certifier needs to revisit your property and do another check to ensure compliance.

There are some cases where you may not need an LCC and Chemsafety will advise you on this. 

What does the Compliance Certifier look for?
Our Compliance Certifier will visit the property and ensure that your hazardous substance store is compliant to the HSNO Regulations.  Items to be checked for compliance include security, emergency management, certified handlers, signage, fire extinguishers and separation distances.
