Spill Control Projects Deadline Set

Posted by on Feb 8, 2017 in Newsroom | Comments Off on Spill Control Projects Deadline Set

AusSpill Association members have agreed to a completion date of 1 December 2017 for its two (2) key projects of:

  • introducing a standard for spill kit colouring and labeling, and
  • the independent testing of members’ absorbent products.

Established in 2012, AusSpill Association (AA) is a product agnostic body which represents Australian spill control manufacturers, resellers/wholesalers & importers as a single voice to government, the public and the environment protection industry.

AusSpill Chairman, Scot Abernethy, said AusSpill’s purpose is to contribute to both its member companies’ prosperity and the on-going achievement of international best–practice standards.

Mr. Abernethy said these two (2) important projects are examples of how AusSpill strives to:

  • be a leading provider of continuing technical input into the development of Australian spill control-related codes & standards
  • promote the spill control industry’s on-going contribution to Australia’s environmental protection.

“So the aim of both these projects is to establish some important and much needed standards for the identification and performance of spill response products.” Mr. Abernethy said AusSpill looks forward to developing further improvements to spill response equipment to assist consumers’ understanding and improve safety. ________________________________________________________________
