What are odour management plans?

  • A very important control measure based on good management principles
  • Identifies releases (normal and abnormal conditions) and documents the control measures for each
  • Applies the control measures (routine and additional)
  • Verifies if the measures are working well enough, reviews and revises to keep effective
  • A live working document that formalises and describes how odour issues will be managed on the site
  • Forms part of the operational management system
  • Shows how odours will be managed and controlled so as to prevent or minimise the impacts
  • Should cover normal operations, but also should anticipate and plan for abnormal events and foreseeable accidents and incidents
