62 National Environment Protection Council NEPC Acts Third Review 2012 FUTURE OF THE NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION COUNCIL SERVICE CORPORATION On 24 August 2012 the National Environment Protection Council agreed to support the Commonwealth expediting amendment to the Commonwealth National Environment Protection Council Act to bring the functions of the National Environment Protection Council Service Corporation into the Commonwealth financial framework. It is expected that this will come about by including provisions for the above amendment in a Commonwealth financial framework legislation amendment bill. A proposed model for new secretariat arrangements is at Attachment C. These changes do not impact on the objects of the Acts and do not diminish environmental protection. The proposed amendments are machinery in nature and should not impact on service to the National Environment Protection Council. They would support efficient governance and would not require a regulation impact statement. Any efficiencies in operation of the secretariat, and potential cost savings, would not be realised until passage of the amendments, and not prior to 201314.
