PUBLICATIONS Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control The essential reference for building and construction site erosion and sediment control for Australia. IECA Australasia is proud to publish Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control. This publication is the most recent and comprehensive erosion and sediment control document currently available in Australia. Its origin lies in the Soil Erosion and Sediment Control, Engineering Guidelines for Queensland Construction Sites published by the then Institution of Engineers, Australia back in 1996. Historically, strategies for the reduction of soil erosion and land degradation have primarily been developed by the agricultural sector and soil scientists. However, soil erosion and land degradation is not restricted to just agricultural areas. Uncontrolled sedimentation, pollution and hydrological changes resulting from construction sites are one of the largest contributors to land and water quality degradation in Australia.

Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control is an essential reference for erosion and sediment control professionals nationally.

Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control is indicative of the significant contribution currently being made to the practice of urban soil erosion and sediment control by other professions, including engineers, ecologists and civil contractors. It contains the necessary strategies and techniques to assist erosion and sediment control practitioners to reduce the degradation of land and water from uncontrolled erosion and sedimentation.

In addition to the 3 hard copy volumes purchasers will be provided with a CD containing volume 4 and the free download material as well as a unique code that will allow them access to a restricted web page that will include volume 4 of the document and a host of free downloadable extras. Volume 4 contains a comprehensive range of erosion and sediment control fact sheets that will be updated regularly to reflect current knowledge.

CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL IN EROSION AND SEDIMENT CONTROL “An international registry of certified professionals technically qualified in erosion and sediment control.” The public demands evidence of professional competence from persons whose activities affect the physical and economic wellbeing of people throughout the world. Such professionals increasingly must be able to show evidence of their qualifications. CPESC, Inc. certifies individuals based on thorough examination and review of an individual’s educational, scientific and service activities in both the public and private sector. CPESC, Inc. has developed standards and procedures for certifying persons qualified to practice in the fields of erosion and sediment control. Individuals who demonstrate an established minimal level of competence through the application review process and an examination process will be certified in erosion and sediment control by CPESC Inc. This certification program is based upon scholarly preparation knowledge and experience. Certified professionals listed on the registry will: (a) meet the educational and practical experience standards, (b) subscribe to the code of ethics, (c) qualify for particular identification of special abilities, and (d) pass a qualifying examination.

The CPESC program started in the United States and is administered by IECA Australasia in Australia. An Australian CPESC committee has developed the program to reflect Australian needs. This has occurred in close consultation with the CPESC Executive Committee in the USA that provides oversight for the program. The committee is working closely with IECA members in New Zealand in developing the CPESC program to reflect the needs of the New Zealand industry. The CPESC program is designed for individuals actively involved in the following E&SC activities: • Development and review of permits. • Design and review of E&SC plans. • Installation and inspection of E&SC practices. • Related activities (such as, assessing regulators, authoring handbooks, and educating the public). For more information or to apply for CPESC please visit www.austieca.com.au .
