The department is consulting on 4 determinations under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 (GEMS Act) that are due to expire by 2025.

It is the standard process for determinations to expire after they have been in place for 10 years.

Determinations may be renewed if a review finds sufficient reason for a determination to continue. Systematic reviews of determinations ensures the regulation remains cost effective and is still achieving greenhouse gas emission reductions.
