NEA Safety Audit

The licencees and permit holders of hazardous substances under the safety audit scheme of NEA are required to conduct a safety audit once every two years.

The purposes of the safety audit are:

  • to verify if the handling and storage of hazardous chemicals at the site comply with the provisions of the EPMA;
  • to determine if the hazardous substances are systematically managed in line with the safety audit criteria and,
  • to identify opportunities for improvement.

The auditors and the management are required to certify that the occurrence of a hazardous substance spill/release at the site, with off-site impacts, is unlikely, after the implementation of audit recommendations. The management shall also submit a follow-up action plan with the date of compliance to NEA. The audit reports are submitted to NEA, MOM and SCDF.
