Regulation

Alcoa’s Western Australian operations are subject to environmental regulation under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 and are licensed by the Department of Conservation (DEC). We are committed to meeting the terms and conditions of our environmental license and environmental approval conditions.
 
Environmental Protection Licence
 
Alcoa’s mining environmental licence is administered by the DEC which sets limits and other conditions to ensure environmental impacts are controlled.
 
There are a series of checks and balances in place to ensure Alcoa meets the limits and requirements of our environmental licence. These include monitoring and reporting, auditing and inspection of operations and procedures and a process of continuous improvement.
 
Alcoa follows the international environmental management system framework (ISO14001) to ensure requirements of our environmental licence and the commitments made in the current (EIP) Environmental Improvement Plan are met.
 
Alcoa’s Huntly and Willowdale Mines are permitted to operate under a number of licences and agreements in accordance with legislative requirements.
