Product Emissions Standards Cost Recovery

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Public consultation on the review of Product Emissions Standards cost recovery arrangements is now closed.

The Product Emissions Standards help improve air quality, protecting human health and the environment. The first emissions-controlled products regulated under the scheme are new spark-ignition non-road engines of 19 kilowatts or less in power and new spark-ignition propulsion marine engines.

This scheme is cost recovered through a levy and application fees. A levy applies on the import, and supply of locally manufactured, emissions-controlled products. Fees are charged on applications for certification and exemptions.

We are reviewing these arrangements ahead of setting parameters for cost recovery for the next 4 years.

How you had your say

The draft Cost Recovery Implementation Statement was published on 24 September 2021. It was accompanied by a plain language factsheet explaining the cost recovery scheme and proposed changes.

We sought feedback on the cost recovery arrangements for the Product Emissions Standards from people across the marine and outdoor power engine industry.

All stakeholders who contributed to scheme cost recovery in 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21 were notified of the consultation by email and invited to provide feedback.

Who engaged

16 people responded through our survey, including 1 written submission.

This included:

  • Importers
  • Retailers
  • Wholesale distributors
  • Industry peak bodies
  • Domestic assemblers/manufacturers.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.

What happens next

We will review and consider your feedback. A summary of stakeholder feedback from this consultation will be included in the final Cost Recovery Implementation Statement.

The final statement, to be published in late 2021, will notify industry of any changes to the Product Emissions Standards cost recovery arrangements agreed to by the Minister.
