Land Transport (Clean Vehicle Standard) Amendment Bill

Introduced under Urgency on May 30. This bill enables Clean Vehicle Standard targets for reducing CO2 emissions for 2025 onwards to be set in secondary legislation, and empowers a cost recovery scheme, which involves the collection of fees, to contribute to the costs of administering the Clean Vehicle Standard, to be set in secondary legislation. The standard requires vehicle importers to meet annual carbon dioxide emissions targets. Vehicle importers must meet these targets, on average, across all the vehicles they import in a year. This enables high-emission vehicles to be imported if their emissions are offset by the importation of zero-emission or low-emission vehicles.
