Following feedback and support from end users, in 2014 CRC CARE, in consultation with practitioners, regulators and site owners, launched a certification scheme for contaminated land practitioners. The result was Site Contamination Practitioners Australia (SCP Australia).
SCP Australia is designed specifically for Australia and aims to provide a professional industry standard to contamination industry practitioners. The committee responsible for the development of the scheme included cross-sector representatives from the Australian contaminated site sector including consultants, site owners (petroleum, mining) and regulators.
SCP Australia complements the accredited site contamination auditor system currently operating in Australia. In so doing it provides a comprehensive and rigorous approach to establishing an Australia-wide standard based on demonstrated competencies and quality of performance.
