20 National Environment Protection Council NEPC Acts Third Review 2012 the implementation and effectiveness of National Environment Protection Measures in participating jurisdictions. The National Environment Protection Council Act establishes the National Environment Protection Council Committee (which includes a nominee from each member of the National Environment Protection Council and has been to date an officials committee), the National Environment Protection Council Service Corporation and the National Environment Protection Council Executive Officer to support the National Environment Protection Council. The National Environment Protection Council initially operated as a stand-alone ministerial council, then from 20012011 operated within the Environment Protection and Heritage Councila body with a broader agenda of environmental and heritage issues. In 2011, following a review of the ministerial council system by the Council of Australian Governments, the Standing Council on Environment and Water was established and given responsibility for the National Environment Protection Council Acts. The National Environment Protection Council meets simultaneously with the Standing Council on Environment and Water, and the membership of both groups is generally the same. Pursuant to section 36(aa) of the Commonwealth National Environment Protection Council Act, the National Environment Protection Council Service Corporation and the National Environment Protection Council Executive Officer have been directed to support the Standing Council on Environment and Water as well as their primary function of supporting the National Environment Protection Council. Section 64 of the National Environment Protection Council Acts provides for a review of the operation of the Acts and the extent to which the object of the Acts has been achieved. The National Environment Protection Council has previously reviewed the National Environment Protection Council Acts in 2001 (the McMichael Review) and 2006 (the Ramsay Review). 1.1 FIRST REVIEW OF THE NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION COUNCIL ACTS2001 The first National Environment Protection Council Acts review was commissioned in 2000 and conducted by Professor Don McMichael (the McMichael Review). This review occurred soon after the Acts had become fully operational and five National Environment Protection Measures had been made, although their implementation was still in the early stages. The terms of reference for the McMichael Review included an examination of the effectiveness of both the National Environment Protection Council model and the current National Environment Protection Measures in terms of meeting the environmental protection and non-distortion objectives of the Act. The terms of reference also included an examination of the various procedural practices of the National Environment Protection Council and its development
