Penalty Notice issued to Ovato Limited (MP08_0088) Liverpool City LGA
On 10 February 2022, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to Ovato Limited for failure to operate within the limits of MP08_0088 as modified (the approval) by operating seven Heat Set Web Offset (HSWO) printers on site, when the approval permitted only six. No environmental assessment was made for the seventh printer, or its potential to add to the cumulative impact of the site. The project has been directed to cease use of the seventh printer. A Modification application has been submitted for the use of the seventh printer, and the Department will continue to monitor and liaise with the project pending the determination.
