Defence Estate Quality Management System (DEQMS) BSI Certification

Report Estate Incidents

NOTE: If you are not yet on GEMS, please use the Environmental Incident Management Process using the AE444 webform ( Click Here )

Defence recognises that effective Incident Management is an important part of successfully undertaking Defence activities and ensuring the long-term sustainability of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) capability and the Defence estate.

Defence understands its responsibilities in Incident Management and is committed to complying with Commonwealth environmental legislation and regulations such as the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. (Cth) (the EPBC Act) and the Work and Health and Safety Act (Cth) 2011.

E&IG will not duplicate/replicate incident reporting and management, where current incident management systems exist. These systems will continue to be the primary reporting system e.g. Sentinel for WHS, DPSMS for Policing, Security & Fraud

E&IG will use GEMS (Defence SAP) to Capture:

  • All environmental incidents;
  • Failure of Critical Capability/Infrastructure Incidents;
  • Estate only incidents;
  • Fires; and
  • Hazards.
