Interagency Taskforce on Air Quality in NSW

As a key regulator of air pollution, the EPA established the high-level Interagency Taskforce on Air Quality in NSW in 2016 to address significant air quality issues across NSW.

The taskforce

  • provides input to and advice on air quality management through cross-agency collaboration and support
  • prioritises strategies to reduce exposure to particulate matter, which has major impacts on human health
  • develops cross-government recommendations and actions to meet national air quality standards
  • coordinates communication of government actions to manage significant air quality issues in NSW

The taskforce includes representatives from

  • NSW EPA
  • Office of Environment and Heritage
  • NSW Health
  • Department of Planning and Environment
  • NSW Department of Industry - Division of Resources and Energy
  • Transport for NSW
  • Department of Premier and Cabinet

The Taskforce replaces the Interagency Taskforce on Air Quality in the Hunter, by expanding the remit of the previous taskforce to consider significant air quality issues across NSW.
