The 2011 Users’ Guide to the revised National Environmental Standards for Air Quality (NES) explains the regulations (including the 2011 amendments) and how they should be implemented. The Users’ Guide has been developed for local government air quality practitioners in particular, but has been made publicly available to provide additional information on the NES.

The guide provides practitioners with a ‘first port of call’ for interpreting and implementing the Resource Management (NES for Air Quality) Regulations 2004 (including the 2011 amendments).

It includes updates made in 2014 to provide further guidance on the offsetting provision and exceptional circumstances.
