Attorney-General’s Department to have a stand at the SPASA Convention

Wednesday, 03 July, 2013

Visitors to the Attorney-General’s Department stand at the SPASA Convention can learn about how Australian governments, both federal and state, have worked collaboratively with industry to assess the national security risks associated with 96 chemicals of security concern and to develop a Voluntary Code of Practice, which is designed to keep our chemicals from falling into the wrong hands.

The Codes objectives are to promote effective chemical security management practices throughout the chemical supply and use chain and, in particular, to:

  • Protect against the diversion of chemicals for terrorist or criminal purposes
  • Encourage cooperation between businesses and organisations that handle chemicals and law enforcement agencies on chemical security matters
  • Educate and train staff to be alert to warning signs and report suspicious behaviours
  • Protect our industry
