PAREPG's response to the review of the EPA's draft air quality policy. The policy does not contain changes consistent with the latest public health findings on particulate pollution. Particulate limits bear no relationship to national standards. The emission of pollutants should be regulated on quantity rather than concentration. Localised ambient air quality objectives which allow relaxation of standards should be approved by parliament, rather than the minister of the day.
