In June 1998 the National Environment Protection Measure for Ambient Air Quality set national standards for sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, lead and particles smaller than 10micrometres. Each State and Territory jurisdiction is required to report annually on its compliance with the measure, including in its report an analysis of the extent to which these standards are met. As a first step, each jurisdiction must develop a monitoring plan approved under the NEPM, setting out how the jurisdiction proposes to monitor air quality for the purposes of this measure (publication 763). Victoria has led the way by being the first State to receive national approval for its air quality monitoring system. This information bulletin summarises Victoria's air monitoring plan.
