Technical Clarification Number

Guidance
2018-09-27

For projects in Africa, the GBCSA confirm that:

For projects where demolition of all buildings and structures took place more than two years prior to the official site handover date to the main contractor, the IEQ-11 credit may be claimed as Non-Applicable.

To claim the credit as Non-Applicable in the submission, projects must provide photographic dated Google map images of the site, clearly indicating the location and boundary of site, at three separate times:

1. At a date prior to demolitions, showing all the original buildings and structures; and 

2. At a date immediately after the buildings were demolished and removed; and

3. At the approximate (within 2-3 months of) the site handover date to the main contractor.

Projects must confirm what the official site handover date was to the main contractor, to be demonstrated in the submission via an extract from an official contract document.

Technical Clarification

Kenya Occupational Safety and Health Act, No. 15 of 2007

Technical Clarification Number 

IEQ-11-T-OB1-1412

Guidance
2016-06-06

For projects in Kenya, the GBCSA confirm that:

- The Kenya Occupational Safety and Health Act, No. 15 of 2007 is the equivalent of the South African Occupational Health and Safety Act (OH&S) for the purposes of credit IEQ-11: Hazardous Materials, in terms of:

    - Recognition/definition of Hazardous Materials

    - Disposal of Hazardous Materials

 

However, the Kenya Occupational Safety and Health Act, No. 15 of 2007 does not define what a "comprehensive hazardous material survey'' should entail. Projects are therefore to undertake the 'comprehensive hazardous material survey' in accordance with the South African Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Act.
