Based on these findings, and on 5 November 2012, DEA issued the facility with a notice of intention to issue a compliance notice in terms of section 31L of NEMA notice [sic], pre-directives in terms of section 31A ECA and section 28(4) of NEMA directives. Representations were received on 30 November 2012. Due to the nature and extent of the facility as well as the non-compliances identified during the 2011 inspection, DEA formed the view that a holistic compliance inspection, which would entail the inspection of the facility in its entirety, should be conducted at the facility. A further inspection took place on 5 August 2014.
The 2014 inspection focussed on the facility in its entirety and also served as a follow-up inspection in order to determine whether the non-compliances observed during the 2011 inspection had adequately been addressed. The findings thereof cannot yet be made available as the inspection report has not been issued to the facility. The DEA is in the process of considering the appropriate enforcement action.
