What happens to NPI reports after they are submitted?

If your company submitted a report to the NPI on 30 September 2021, what happens to the report and when does it become available to the public?

On 31 March each year, updated pollution information becomes available to the public via the Commonwealth Government's NPI website. For companies reporting on 30 September 2021, the information submitted will therefore become available to the public on 31 March 2022. The process involves relevant State and Commonwealth Government agencies reviewing the reports and seeking feedback from reporters on issues that appear to be inconsistent or otherwise require clarification.

Questions for industry from State Government agencies are most likely to come in the first few months after the report has been submitted. After the reports are passed to the Commonwealth Government (usually at the end of November or December), questions for industry reporters about their reports could come from either State or Commonwealth Governments.

You can read more about the NPI reporting process in the latest version of the NPI Guide.

Please contact peter@NPIplus.com.au if you have any questions about how NPI+ can help you meet the requirements of the NPI for the 2021 calendar year reporting period. The reports for the 2021 calendar year reporting period are due on 31 March 2022.

Alternatively you can obtain direct government advice by contacting the relevant government agency in your state as shown here on the NPI government website.
