Inspection Findings

A draft compliance report is issued after every compliance inspection. Compliance reports detail appropriate recommendations to correct breaches in the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996 (Regulations) or to improve an Environmental Body's (EB's) procedures and internal controls.

EBs are invited to provide comments on our draft findings which should include details of the actions an EB plans to introduce to address any compliance issues identified during the inspection. We ask that responses are provided within 28 days of issuing the draft report.

All comments to draft reports are reviewed to ensure the issues identified have been adequately addressed. A final report will then be issued to the EB to formally conclude the compliance inspection process.

In order to assist EBs to comply with the Regulations we publish a quarterly summary of the findings of our compliance inspections and the actions taken by EBs to address the issues raised. The summary includes;

  • A breakdown of the number of recommendations made during the year to date;
  • Analysis of the recommendations raised;
  • A summary of the findings; and
  • The corrections made by EBs.

​The document is located at the right hand side of this page in the form of a PDF document.
