Coastal Sands conducts routine testing on all of our product lines through our Quality Assurance Management System. Testing regimes range from daily through to biannually depending on products and prerequisites on demand.
Our onsite laboratory carries out routine tests on the physical properties of our products, ensuring stockpile consistency. Additionally, we outsource our testing to NATA labs for chemical and physical properties to ensure all aspects of quality assurance are covered. Product certification and specific testing suites can be accessed on request.
Fire Ant Permit
As we are operating in Southeast Queensland as a resource supplier, we are an active participant in monitoring and controlling the spread of fire ants. Coastal Sands is operating in a zone 2 biosecurity fire ant area, which requires our site to operate with a Biosecurity Instrument Permit under the Biosecurity Act 2014.
Coastal Sands is fire ant free and implements continual monitoring of stockpiles and site areas for any potential signs.
Please click on the ‘Fire Ant Permit’ link below to retrieve a copy of the permit to keep on file for product tracking. The traceability system of fire ants has been set up and monitored by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries to which all resource industries parties in the zone must comply. As we are operating in a fire ant zone we must abide by the Instrument Permit and let our customers know.
This does not impact on any business relationships you have with Coastal Sands but simply to have our customers aware we are compliant in the fire ant eradication program.
Feel free to contact me with any inquiries regarding this matter.
