What’s this about?

The current Sampling Design Guidelines were developed in 1995.

The revised guidelines, Sampling design part 1 – application and Sampling design part 2 – interpretation, build on the National Environment Protection (Assessment of Site Contamination) Measure 1999

Contaminated land practitioners, site auditors, regulators, planning authorities, landholders, developers and the community are invited to give feedback on the revised Sampling Design Guidelines.

Your feedback will help to ensure the final guidelines are easy to use and contain up-to-date, relevant information.
