National Environmental Protection Council annual report 2 0 1 0 2 0 1 1102 A C T A IR T O X IC S Australian Capital Territory Report to the NEPC on the implementation of the National Environment Protection (Air Toxics) Measure for the Australian Capital Territory by Mr Simon Corbell MLA, Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, for the reporting year ended 30 June 2011. PART 1 IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NEPM AND ANY SIGNIFICANT ISSUES The Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate, ACT Government, has the responsibility for the administration of the National Environment Protection Measure for Air Toxics (the NEPM). PART 2 ASSESSMENT OF NEPM EFFECTIVENESS In accordance with clause 8 of the NEPM, the ACT has previously undertaken a desktop analysis for the identification of stage 1 and 2 sites. This assessment was undertaken in accordance with the nationally agreed Desktop Analysis procedure. Only one stage 1 site was identified, which was not subsequently identified as a stage 2 site requiring monitoring. Reporting on assessment and action if any planned or taken to manage air toxics The previous desktop analysis has shown that air toxics are not an issue for the ACT. Repeat identification of stage 1 and stage 2 sites The ACT has not repeated the desktop analysis exercise because a preliminary analysis of the ACTs emission profile has not identified any significant change since the first desktop analysis. Since this assessment was undertaken, there has been an improvement in the ACTs air quality because of actions on both wood heaters and motor vehicle emissions.
