Defence Estate Quality Management System (DEQMS) BSI Certification

Report Estate Incidents


Defence recognises that effective Incident Management is an important part of successfully undertaking Defence activities and ensuring the long-term sustainability of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) capability and the Defence estate.

Defence understands its responsibilities in Incident Management and is committed to complying with Commonwealth environmental legislation and regulations such as the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. (Cth) (the EPBC Act) and the Work and Health and Safety Act (Cth) 2011.

E&IG will not duplicate/replicate incident reporting and management, where current incident management systems exist. These systems will continue to be the primary reporting system, e.g. Sentinel for WHS, DPSMS for Policing, Security & Fraud

Please note: The form must be submitted from within the DRN. If you do not have a Defence or CIOG approved email address you will not be able to successfully submit an Estate Incident Report Form. However, we encourage you to fill in the Report Form and email it to GEMS Support (EIG GEMS USER SUPPORT, or your Defence Point Of Contact (POC) if you have one.

E&IG will use GEMS (Defence SAP) to Capture:

  • All environmental incidents;
  • Failure of Critical Capability/Infrastructure Incidents;
  • Estate only incidents;
  • Fires; and
  • Hazards.
