2 National Environment Protection Council NEPC Acts Third Review Response 2013 WINDING UP THE NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION COUNCIL SERVICE CORPORATION The review considered the efficiency of the council and secretariat operations. When formally initiating the review of the National Environment Protection Council Acts, National Environment Protection Council also supported the Commonwealth expediting amendment to the Commonwealth National Environment Protection Council Act 1994 to bring the functions of the National Environment Protection Council Service Corporation into the Commonwealth financial framework. This followed extensive review of the operation and budget for the corporation before, and following, its move from Adelaide to the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities offices in Canberra. It is expected that the National Environment Protection Council Act will be amended by Commonwealth Finance Framework legislation in the first half of 2013 to abolish the National Environment Protection Council Service Corporation and bring the operations within the ambit of the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997.
