Flammable and combustible liquids

On 1 January 2012, the Dangerous Goods Safety Management (DGSM) Act 2001 was repealed.

The repeal of the dangerous goods legislation resulted in the abolition of the flammable and combustible liquids (FCL) licences administered by local governments. This means that all FCL licences ceased to have effect after 31 December 2011. There is no power for local governments to issue FCL licences after this date.

The storage of dangerous goods is now regulated by the Queensland Work Health and Safety (WHS) Act 2011.
