National Environmental Protection Council annual report 2 0 1 0 2 0 1 1134 Ta s A M B IE N T A IR Q U A L IT Y Data from relevant monitoring stations are presented in tabular form below to enable an evaluation of whether the NEPM standards and goal were met at each monitoring station. The standards, with accompanying definitions and explanations, appear in Schedule 2 of the NEPM. For averaging times shorter than one year, compliance with the NEPM goal is achieved if the standard for a pollutant is exceeded on no more than a specified number of days in a calendar year (one day per year for all pollutants except PM10, which may be exceeded no more than five days per year) and at least 75% of data is captured in each quarter. The data are presented in greater detail in Air Monitoring Report 2010, Compliance with the National Environment Protection (Ambient Air Quality) Measure.
