90 National Environment Protection Council NEPC Acts Third Review 2012 NATIONAL POLLUTANT INVENTORY NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION MEASURE (2007 VARIATION) The National Environment Protection Council varied the National Pollutant Inventory in 2007 to require reporting of National Pollutant Inventory substances in waste transferred for treatment, containment or final disposal. New substances were also added to the National Pollutant Inventory substances list. Other amendments included: changes to reporting time frames removal of the exclusion clause for aquaculture removal of reporting on greenhouse gas emissions (removed by a minor variation in 2008) threshold changes for mercury, PM10 and, if included in the National Pollutant Inventory, PM2.5. USED PACKAGING MATERIALS NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION MEASURE (200405 AND 201011 VARIATIONS) The National Environment Protection Council varied the Used Packaging Materials National Environment Protection Measure in 200405 and in 201011 to extend the measure to underpin the second and third national/Australian packaging covenants. Variations to the measure were minor in each case. In late 2010 administrative issues were identified with the registration of the previous minor variations. To remove uncertainty about the standing of the previous variations, the National Environment Protection Measure was remade in 2011.
