Who audited the Buller river aerial 1080 operation of November 2019

Wendy Pond made this Official Information request to Canterbury District Health Board

The request was successful.

From: Wendy Pond

Dear Canterbury District Health Board,

Thank you for the responses to my OIA requests WCDHB 9391 and 9394, 2 March 2020. May I please ask for this clarification: The conditions for permission for use of aerial poisoning in catchments of the Buller river in November 2019 (that resulted in carcasses being washed up in public places) were written by the Medical Officer of Health. She did not audit the operation. 

Without being present and without an audit, by what means does the HSNO Enforcement Officer know that the conditions of permission were adhered to? 

Who is responsible for ensuring the safety of public health when an aerially dispersed VTA is used, and when effects occur outside the boundaries of the permitted operation? 

Yours faithfully,

Wendy Pond
