Undertaking date2 April 2013
Date completed26 June 2013
Circumstances

In relation to the report by Orica Limited under the NGER Act for the 2010-11 reporting year, an audit identified that the report was not compliant with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Determination 2008. Accordingly Orica Limited's report for 2010-11 was not compliant with section 19 of the NGER Act.

In particular, in relation to nitrous oxide emissions from nitric acid plants at two facilities operated by Orica Limited, the audit identified that there was not sufficient appropriate audit evidence to demonstrate compliance with the reporting methodology adopted by Orica Limited in its 2010-11 report. Measurements of flow and concentration, which formed the basis of reporting, were non-compliant with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Determination 2008.

Orica Limited has acknowledged that the non-compliance identified in respect of the 2010-11 reporting year may apply to all other reports submitted by Orica Limited to date. Additionally, Orica Limited has indicated that they will resubmit previous reports as requested by the Regulator.

Undertaking

Orica Limited has undertaken to prepare and submit a schedule of technical works and to use its best endeavours to complete the items in that schedule so as to resolve the technical issues regarding measurements of flow and concentration that previously prevented Orica Limited from reporting in compliance with the NGER Act, the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Regulations 2008 and the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Determination 2008.

A category 2 or 3 registered greenhouse and energy auditor approved by the Clean Energy Regulator will be appointed by Orica Limited to provide assurance that the technical issues have been resolved.
