Queensland conducted four training sessions for interested NPI reporters, with a total 86 people attending. This training was aimed at providing attendees with an overview of the NPI program; what reporting triggers apply; and how to estimate and report emissions and transfers. All industry reports were processed in accordance with national data verification procedures. This included checking that the emissions and transfer data were consistent with the size and nature of the facility and the amount of fuel burned during the reporting period; and comparing the new data with historical data. Telephone and email support was offered to all NPI reporters, with the vast majority being contacted during the data validations process.
