89 National Environment Protection Council NEPC Acts Third Review 2012 DIESEL VEHICLE EMISSIONS NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION MEASURE (2009 VARIATION) The Diesel Vehicle Emissions National Environment Protection Measure was reviewed in 2007 and, overall, was found to provide a sound framework for programs to reduce emissions from diesel vehicles. However, the review also found scope for improving and updating the schedules to the National Environment Protection Measure. The measure was subsequently varied to update the schedules, and in particular to: incorporate reference to new technology reflect knowledge gained through experience in implementing the National Environment Protection Measure and its guidelines improve the effectiveness of the National Environment Protection Measure. MOVEMENT OF CONTROLLED WASTE NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION MEASURE (2004 AND 2010 MINOR VARIATIONS) In 2004 the Movement of Controlled Waste National Environment Protection Measure was subject to minor variation to take account of recycling programs and extended producer responsibility programs which have interstate or national components, and products subject to recall approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority, Food Standards Australia New Zealand or the Therapeutic Goods Administration. Submissions received from stakeholders consulted during the 2009 review of the National Environment Protection Measure indicated that some further minor variations were needed to remove clauses that are no longer required, to provide greater clarity to the schedules and certainty to industry when completing documentation, and to reduce the regulatory burden where requirements do not achieve any significant environmental benefit. Some stakeholders also made submissions indicating that the National Environment Protection Measure needed some clarification as to the types of policies and legislation that should be considered by jurisdictions when making decisions about the movement of waste. The measure was subject to minor variation to address these issues.
