CASA EX81/20 — Implementation of Drug and Alcohol Management Plans (Micro-businesses and DAMP organisations) Exemption 2020.
This CASA instrument comprises three (3) exemptions, one of which is the DAMP exemption for micro-businesses. These exemptions were previously published separately, however as they each reference the other, in the interests of clarity CASA has reissued these under one instrument.
Sections 8 and 9 of CASA EX81/20 comprise the following exemptions that provide relief from administrative and cost burdens as follows:
- A DAMP organisation may contract employees from another DAMP organisation without having to apply its DAMP to the contracted employees
- A DAMP organisation may contract Emergency Services personnel during a time of emergency under an acceptable means of compliance.
Note: Sections 5 to 7 of CASA EX81/20 relate to the DAMP exemption for micro-businesses. Please refer to the detailed information on eligibility and application guidance on the CASA webpage.
An application process is not required for use of the exemptions under sections 8 and 9 of CASA EX81/20. These are standard exemptions issued on CASA’s own initiative.
Only organisations wishing to adopt the DAMP exemption for micro-businesses must follow a regulatory service process as detailed on the CASA webpage.
All exemptions under CASA EX81/20 carry specific obligations for all parties involved, including record-keeping requirements due to providing acceptable means of compliance. Therefore, please ensure that all conditions are read and understood prior to consideration of adopting an exemption under this instrument.
