SAFETY GUIDANCE

All material shipped to Tellus must be

  • Appropriately packaged and suitable for the intended journey,
  • Shipped by supply chain providers who have appropriate licencing, insurance, and training, and
  • Compliant with all applicable laws and approvals.

Tellus is happy to assist with the above requirements.

PERMANENT ISOLATION CERTIFICATE: THE TELLUS PIC™

Tellus is the only company in Australia that can offer a waste owner a Permanent Isolation Certificate (or Tellus PIC™), which certifies facts required by auditors under AASB137 to permanently remove disposal liability from a waste owner’s balance sheet. Tellus’ ability to issue this certificate is backed by two of the “Big Four” accounting firms and also by our world-class safety case.

Further information can be provided on request.
