Introducing AusSpill

The Spill Control Industry’s Voice

AusSpill Association (AA) represents Australian spill control manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers & importers as a single voice to government, the public and the environment protection industry.


Formed in May 2012, AusSpill’s foundation policies are to:

  • Promote AusSpill to regulators, government and industry as a product agnostic, nationwide spill control industry representative body i.e. the voice of the industry.
  • Support a nationwide product accreditation and compliance scheme, recognized by all environmental regulators and government bodies.
  • Implement Industry standard test methods in order to provide an impartial performance appraisal of absorbent materials and a method for identifying absorbent types (Hazchem/chemical. Oil & Fuel/hydrocarbons, General Purpose)
  • Create an Australian Standard for Spill Response Kits and include that standard in other Australian Standards for the storage and handling of all classes of chemicals.
  • Create and develop standards & test methods for other spill control products (such as bunding) as the industry requires.
  • Collect Spill Control Industry data to assist governments and industry in the maintenance of international best practice spill control policy.


AusSpill is a product-agnostic organisation and has been structured to allow all spill control product-types and services groups the option to appoint their own Board member.
