Environmental Control Officer (ECO)

Environmental approvals (EAs, WULs, WMLs etc.) granted by environmental Departments require the applicant to appoint a suitably qualified independent ECO to monitor and report on the implementation of the project environmental requirements.

The following Independent ECO services are provided by EP3 in line with the approval requirements:

  • Environmental awareness training;
  • Periodic (weekly, bi-weekly or monthly) site inspections;
