Updated Fact Sheet 33 and Site Information Request Form
August 28, 2014

We have just updated Fact Sheet 33, “Obtaining Information from the SWIS, AMS and Compliance and Enforcement Databases” and our Site Information Request form. The changes reflect new ways in which the ministry is making information available to the public.

Information on discharge authorizations under the Environmental Management Act and on environmental violations is now available free of charge on the ministry’s website. In addition, ministry quarterly compliance and enforcement reports are now available on our website.

Information on discharge authorizations, environmental violations, and compliance and enforcement will no longer be available by submitting a Site Information Request form. However, we will continue to search the SWIS (hazardous waste) database and the Site Registry, and respond to requests for custom reports of site information, upon submission of this form.

If you have questions or comments, please sent them to

The purpose of the Ministry of Environment’s CS e-Link system is to identify legal, technical, policy and guidance information related to the management and administration of contaminated sites in British Columbia which may be of interest to subscribers. Mention of non-Ministry of Environment documents or presentations does not constitute ministry endorsement of their contents, only an acknowledgment that they exist and may be of interest to CS e-Link subscribers.
