National Environmental Protection Council annual report 2 0 1 0 2 0 1 1 63 Implementation issues arising In late 2010, the NEPC made a minor variation to the NEPM to provide greater clarity, remove unnecessary regulatory burden and remove clauses that are no longer required. In February 2011, drafting errors in the 2010 minor variation were identified. The Executive Officer undertook to assess the circumstances leading to the error and work with the Australian Government to identify solutions. NEPC has commenced a second minor variation to correct these errors.
