The Department regulates the clean-up of impacted sites. As part of the process, the Impacted Sites Management Section completes reviews of environmental site assessment, risk assessment, remedial action/risk management plans, and monitoring reports for impacted sites. Once satisfied that the Management of Impacted Sites process has been followed and the impacts have been satisfactorily addressed, the ISMS reviews and signs off on the Record of Site Condition completed by a registered Site Professional. This serves as acknowledgment of regulatory closure from the Department of impacts at a property.
As of May 1, 2015, there are fees for regulatory closure reviews.
