Notice of Intention to Vary the National Environment Protection (Ambient Air Quality) Measure


The National Environment Protection Council (NEPC) is a national council of Commonwealth, State and Territory Ministers.  The NEPC’s role is to make National Environment Protection Measures (NEPMs). NEPMs are designed to improve national consistency in environment protection outcomes.

The NEPC gives notice that it intends to make a variation to the Ambient Air Quality NEPM in relation to the standards for particles.  This variation will reflect latest scientific understanding and will allow for an adequate level of health protection against the impacts of particle air pollution for the Australian community.    

For information on the development of the variation, visit www.nepc.gov.au, or contact NEPC Service Corporation, GPO Box 787, Canberra, ACT, 2601. Telephone: (02) 6274 1819; NEPC@environment.gov.au.

This notice is given pursuant to s.20 of the National Environment Protection Council Act 1994 (Cwlth) and equivalent provisions in the corresponding Acts of States and Territories.
