Incidents at regulated sites are events that are outside the normal range of operations. All licensed sites are required to report incidents to the EPA as specified in their licences.
Incidents are categorised as Minor, Limited, Serious, Very Serious or Catastrophic. The vast majority of incidents reported to the EPA are Minor. See Incidents at EPA regulated sites for more details.
The EPA publishes Notifications of Recent incidents along with details of our investigation of the incident and a summary of its conclusions.
