National Priority Sites

The EPA has developed a system to rank industrial and waste licensed sites in order of priority for enforcement. The National Priority Sites List will be used to target our enforcement effort at the poorest performing sites in order to drive improvements in environmental compliance.

A score is assigned to each facility based on enforcement factors such as complaints, incidents, compliance investigations (CIs), and non-compliances (NCs) with the licence. Further details about the system and how the scores are allocated.

The EPA updates the National Priority Sites list on a quarterly basis. A total of 11 sites were identified as being NPS during four iterations of the NPS list during 2019.
