On the 26 June 1998 the National Environment Protection Council (NEPC), consisting of Commonwealth, State and Territory Ministers, made the Measure on Ambient Air Quality (hereafter referred to as the Measure), NEPC (1998). This Measure established a set of Standards and Goals for six air pollutants - carbon monoxide, photochemical oxidants (as ozone), nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, lead, particles as PM10 - and outlined the methods by which these pollutants are to be measured, assessed and reported.

This Report presents New South Wales' submission on how it plans to monitor, assess and report air quality for the purposes of the Measure.
