A review of the operation of the Act as required by section 64(1)(a). 2. A review of the extent to which the object set out in section 3 of the Act has been achieved, as required by section 64(1)(b). 3. The status and effectiveness of National Environment Protection Measures as a framework for achieving nationally consistent guidance and standards, including possible alternative approaches based on best practice models. 4. The review should recommend whether any amendments to the Act and/or the National Environment Protection Measure process should be progressed at this time. The review will cover the period up to 30 March 2012. In respect of the effectiveness of current National Environment Protection Measures, and possible alternative approaches, the review will have regard to items currently on the work plan for the Standing Council on Environment and Water, including the development of the National Plan for Clean Air and the Council of Australian Governments Chemical Reform agenda. The review will be conducted by a sub-group of officials (the Deliverable 3 Working Group) overseen by the Seamless Environmental Regulation Thematic Oversight Group and the National Environment Protection Council Committee. The National Environment Protection Council Executive Officer will assist the review. The review will be a desk top review by officials. No formal consultation with stakeholders will be sought during the review. Should Council wish to progress legislative change as a result of the review, further consultation including a Regulation Impact Statement may be required. The report of the review should be completed by end of 2012, with the report to be tabled by early 2013.
