3A  Manufacture levy—SGGs

 (1) If:

 (b) the licensee manufactures an SGG during a quarter during which the licence is in force;

levy is imposed on the licensee in respect of that manufacture.

 (2) Subsection (1) does not apply to the manufacture of an SGG in circumstances that are prescribed for the purposes of paragraph 13(1A)(b) of the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989.

 (3) Subsection (1) does not apply to the manufacture of an SGG that is to be used for a purpose prescribed by the regulations.

 (4) For the purposes of this section, if a licence is in force for only part of a particular quarter, that part is taken to be a quarter.

 (5) The amount of levy imposed by subsection (1) on a licensee in respect of the manufacture of an SGG in a quarter is the amount worked out using the following formula:

where:

prescribed rate means:

 (a) $165; or

 (b) if a lower amount is prescribed by the regulations—that lower amount.

 (7) If:

 (a) levy is imposed by subsection (1) on a licensee in respect of the manufacture of an SGG; and

 (b) the Minister is satisfied that the SGG:

 (i) is to be used in medical equipment; or

 (ii) is to be used in the manufacture of medical equipment; or

 (iii) is to be used in a product, or in equipment, prescribed for the purposes of paragraph 8D(1)(c) of the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989; or

 (iv) is to be used in the manufacture of a product, or of equipment, specified in an instrument in force under paragraph 8D(1)(d) of that Act; or

 (9) In making a determination under subsection (7), the Minister must have regard to such matters as are specified in the regulations.

 (10) The Minister must not make a recommendation to the GovernorGeneral about regulations to be made for the purposes of subsection (3) unless the Minister is satisfied that:

 (a) it would be impracticable to impose levy on the manufacture of an SGG that is to be used for a purpose to be prescribed by those regulations; or

 (b) a purpose to be prescribed by those regulations is a medical, veterinary, health or safety purpose.

 (11) The Minister must not make a recommendation to the GovernorGeneral about regulations to be made for the purposes of subparagraph (7)(b)(v) unless the Minister is satisfied that:
