The NEPM contains a clause to conduct a mid-term review of the NEPM to evaluate the data collected and identify any problems that the jurisdictions were having in implementing the NEPM. A full review of the NEPM is due to commence in 2012.
The terms of reference for the mid-term review include:
• A summary of air toxics monitoring conducted to date and any proposed until the full review of the NEPM
• What the data collected to date indicates about air toxics in Australia
• What difficulties or issues jurisdictions faced in the implementation of the NEPM
• What changes might be required to the NEPM at this time noting that this is not a full review of the NEPM.
