Application and notification forms, instructions, and schedules are used by site owners, operators and consultants involved in assessing and cleaning up contaminated sites.
Site profiles are forms that require information about the past and present uses of a site, as well as basic land descriptions. They require readily available information, and should not require the assistance of a consultant to complete. The content and format of a site profile are provided in Schedule 1 of the Environmental Management Act’s Contaminated Sites Regulation.
If you determine that none of the activities listed in Schedule 2 of the Regulation has occurred, then you don’t have to complete a site profile – unless you’re ordered to do so by a Director of Waste Management, or a local government asks you to complete parts of a profile for their own records.
