A recent change on the Defence Legislation Support Tool (DLST) has merged forms EMP03/F/01 – Register of Environmental Standards and SMP01/F/03 – Register of Safety Legislation and Other Significant Requirements. To align ASEMS with this change we have updated the forms available in EMP03 and SMP01 to the form available on the DLST titled EMP03/F/01 SMP01/F/03 – Register of Legislation and Requirements. The form is intended to serve both Safety and Environment equally.
