Ms LEY (FarrerMinister for the Environment) (10:53): I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

The Industrial Chemicals Environmental Management (Register) Charge (Customs) Bill 2020 is the second of three bills being introduced to provide a framework for the Commonwealth to recover costs for administering the measures in the Industrial Chemicals Environmental Management (Register) Bill 2020 (the principal bill).

The Industrial Chemicals Environmental Management (Register) Charge (Customs) Bill 2020 will impose charges only when they are considered a duty of customs.

The key provisions of the bill mirror those in the Industrial Chemicals Environmental Management (Register) Charge (General) Bill 2020 and have the same operative function and effect.

The amounts recovered by the charges, and the persons liable or exempt from paying them, will be set in regulations made under this bill.

Debate adjourned.
