Enabling the Environmental Protection Authority to Upgrade New Zealand Emissions Trading Register
This initiative will enable the Environmental Protection Authority to implement necessary changes to the New Zealand Emissions Trading Register required by legislation.
Expanding the Environmental Protection Authority's Chemical Reassessment Programme
This initiative will expand the Environmental Protection Authority's (EPA) chemical reassessment programme. The funding will enable the EPA to respond to emerging issues and/or carry out additional reassessments. These reassessments will enable the EPA to meet its responsibilities under the Hazardous Substances and Organisms Act 1996 (HSNO Act) to protect the environment and the health and safety of New Zealanders by preventing or managing the adverse effects of hazardous substances.
