The Technical Review Panel advises the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) on the load-based licensing (LBL) scheme and the contents of the Load Calculation Protocol. The panel includes representatives of industry, local government, environment groups, the EPA and an independent adviser.
Matters that the panel may consider include
- development of site-specific emission factors
- changes to generic emission factors to reflect new data or new pollution abatement strategies
- modification or addition of new sampling, analysis or load calculation methods
The panel meets on a biannual basis. The next meeting will be scheduled in 2013.
The EPA invites LBL licensees to provide submissions to the panel, including applications for site-specific emission factors.
Please send any submissions, comments or queries to TRP@environment.nsw.gov.au.
