AMA submission to the National Environment Protection Council's consultation on the proposed variation to the National Environment Protection (Ambient Air Quality) Measure standards for ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide
Air quality standards are essential in ensuring the health of all people and it is critical that these standards are based on the most current and accurate research on the impact of air pollution on human health. The AMA has concerns around current air quality standards, which we consider to be outdated. The AMA believes that the Australian standards for ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide should be in line with Australian and international evidence, taking WHO guidelines as a starting point where appropriate.
