MACS Compliance Reporting for Irish Water

Under Section 16 (1) of the Public health Act, it is an offense for food operators to allow waste FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease) to enter a public drain or sewer. The food operator is subject to criminal liability if they cannot demonstrate compliance with the conditions of their discharge license.

Irish Water inspectors require the licensee to regularly monitor, maintain and document the compliance performance of each grease trap. For busy food service establishments, grease trap compliance can be a time consuming and challenging responsibility.

What is MACS?

MACS is a unique database that is updated monthly or bimonthly by your service engineer and provides food operators and Irish Water inspectors with remote access to all of your grease trap maintenance and compliance records. Hard copy records are produced each month (or bimonthly) by your service engineer and stored in your waterproof compliance manual. In addition, your monthly or bi monthly maintenance and compliance reports are emailed to you and your designated staff.

What are the benefits?

Every maintenance and compliance record is safely stored and remotely accessible 24/7. Hard copy records are also stored on site. Access to MACS include:

  • Waste disposal certificates
  • FOG,BOD,COD,pH levels etc.
  • Maintenance reporting
  • Staff training records
  • Annual environment reports
  • Discharge licensing
  • Irish Water inspections
  • Performance reporting
  • Reactive maintenance
