Storing hazardous materials and waste dangerous goods avoid environmental impacts or risk to human health. To minimize these risks, regulations ensure storage facilities are constructed, operated, and decommissioned properly.
Application to Construct or Upgrade and Operate a Storage Facility
The Ministry of Environment must approve the construction, alteration or expansion of a facility to handle hazardous substances or waste dangerous goods. All hazardous substance storage facilities require operating approvals.
Application to Decommission a Storage Facility
Owners require an approval from the Ministry of Environment to dismantle or decommission equipment used to store and handle hazardous substances and waste dangerous goods.
