2. NATIONAL TRANSPORT COMMISSION SURVEY ON MANDATORY ESCAPE RESPIRATORS FOR PLACARD LOADS (DUE 31 JULY)

The National Transport Commission (NTC) released (24 June) a survey to gather information on mandatory escape respirators for placard loads containing Division 2.3, Division 6.1 or Class 8 dangerous goods.  The information gathered through the survey will assist the NTC in the comprehensive review of the ADG Code. You can help by disseminating the survey and encouraging fleet owners in your network to complete it.

You can complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/56DJPGP   Links to the survey are also available on the NHVR Portal and the NTC project page under ‘Get involved’.

Further information on the ADG Code review is available on the NTC project page.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

3. FESTIVAL IDEAS OF TIMING - 25 AUGUST - ANY COMMENTS

As discussed at the General Meeting (23 June), the Executive Committee is considering moving the Festival of Ideas to 25 August. The event would most likely be in Sydney and a mix of face-to-face and online.

The thinking in bringing it forward is that this will be an opportune time to discuss future strategic priorities for ABRI given there was no discussion in 2020.

Please reach out to Katharine Hole, CEO, with views or suggestions as to the timing and focus of the Festival. Katharine’s email is secretariat@batteryrecycling.org.au
