Overview The EHC (Environmentally Hazardous Chemicals Act 1985) allows the EPA (NSW Environment Protection Authority) to regulate chemicals or groups of chemicals of environmental concern. These requirements are set out in chemical control orders (CCOs), and may require a licence or prohibit certain activities. The activities may include storing, transporting and treating chemicals and/or their wastes.

The University stores and uses chemicals in relation to teaching, horticulture, research, farming activities, research, and cleaning which may be subject to CCOs (in relation to the manner in which chemicals are stored, used and disposed).
