On June 27, 2019, the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) of New Zealand published the HSNO Enforcement Report 2018. The report looks at the enforcement of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996 (the HSNO Act) for the 2017/18 financial year (July 1 2017 – June 30 2018).

According to the official release, it is the first since significant changes to the enforcement regime for hazardous substances took effect a year and a half ago. On December 1, 2017, the EPA completed the transition of workplace controls for hazardous substances from the HSNO Act to the regulations of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA).
