45 National Environment Protection Council NEPC Acts Third Review 2012 Any proposal to amend the National Environment Protection Council Acts should investigate broadening the scope of the Acts, establishing a framework for national decisions implemented through jurisdictions and enabling the setting of environmental performance standards for products and equipment. The preferred approach should be determined following detailed consideration of the specific needs of any scheme. IMPLEMENTATION OF NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION MEASURES (4.5) The National Environment Protection Council should determine the most appropriate approach to support consistent implementation of each National Environment Protection Measure, focusing on areas where consistent implementation can strengthen environmental outcomes and reduce business costs. Where greater consistency in implementation is of benefit, particularly when inconsistent implementation has a negative impact on business, it is recommended that jurisdictions: - work together to pursue opportunities to improve and harmonise implementation of National Environment Protection Measures, including improved regulatory practice - ensure timely translation of National Environment Protection Measure requirements into jurisdictional instruments. The National Environment Protection Council should consider amendment of the National Environment Protection Council Acts to include a power to make regulations to implement National Environment Protection Measures.
