    Accredited Mass Management Scheme Update


    Recently WARTA facilitated a meeting of the WA major bulk product suppliers within WA and major transport companies in the sector to identify and discuss the issues effecting the implementation of the Accredited Mass Management Scheme (AMMS). The meeting was held at Cristal Resources board room and included representatives from CBH, CSBP, Bunge, Summit Fertilisers, Cristal Resources, Catalano’s and Cropline, with detailed submission from Boral.

    The members of the group were able to identify and articulate numerous issues that required clarification from Main Roads WA.

    Following the meeting WARTA met with Main Roads to discuss all the issues raised and to seek clarification. Additionally WARTA represented the views of the group members that:

    “The clear strategic intent of the AMMS system should be on improved productivity in return for greater mass management control. During the implementation period, the focus on compliance systems is perceived to be distracting from the strategic intent.”

    Main Roads undertook to provide written answers to the questions and have duly done so. Group members have welcomed the responses from Main Roads, and the feedback is that most feel comfortable with the AMMS implementation date.

    WARTA would like to thank and acknowledge the efforts of all members of the group, including the hospitality and participation of Dan di Stasio Regional Distribution Manager – Asia Pacific Cristal Resources.

    Furthermore, WA Main Roads should be commended for the timeliness and effort in providing such clear responses. Copies of the clarification response can be obtained from WARTA by emailing cam@warta.com.au

    Finally, consulting with industry to identify issues, then working cooperatively with government, regulators or other impacting bodies, is how results are achieved.
