Abstract

This guideline is the first Malaysian standard (MS2072:2008) which aims to provide guidance to assist the planning, site selection, design and implementation of partial, short-term, or early action remedies undertaken at contaminated sites. This guideline was developed by the Working Group on Site Remediation under the auspices of the Environmental Management Industry Standards Committee, and subsequently approved by the same Committee on 3 December 2007 without amendments.

The purpose of this guideline is to manage, control or reduce the risks posed by contaminated sites. The early action remedies and strategies are applicable to the management of other regulatory processes such as Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Act 2007, Environmental Quality Act 1974 and Local Government Act 1976.

This standard identifies and describes a standard process, technical requirements, information needs, benefits and strategy for early action remedies undertaken at contaminated sites. It is applicable to contaminated sites as defined by the Department of Environment and Department of National Solid Waste Management.

The guideline highlights the basic activities associated with implementing an early action such as the construction of a Conceptual Site Model (CSM), estimation of risk(s), identification of exposure control, development of interim, selection of the desired solution(s), attainment of legal authority, design and execution of selected solution(s) and post-implementation monitoring of the CSM.
