Operator monitoring assessments (OMAs)

Expirea can assist with your Operator Monitoring Assessment (OMA).

The EA undertakes OMAs to assess the quality and reliability of operators’ self-monitoring of emissions to air and water. The OMA informs the EA’s review of the monitoring requirements in permits. If the OMA is below standard the EA may require third party check monitoring by independent monitoring contractors which will be at the Operator’s expense.

Planning and preparation for the OMA audit will help you to ensure that it is carried out effectively and efficiently. It is in your interest for the OMA audit to accurately reflect your current standard of self-monitoring.

We can help you prepare for an OMA audit to ensure the necessary information is readily available on the day and can advise how to improve your systems to improve your OMA score.
