|The requirement to define each activity by reference to a physical, chemical or biological transformation of inputs into outputs.||The proposed activity definition is consistent with this matter.|
|The undesirability of activities being defined by reference to the technology employed, the fuel used, the age of the plant, or the quality of the types of feedstock used when the activity is carried out.||The proposed activity definition does not reference technology, fuel used, age of plant, or types of feedstock.|
|The desirability of defining activities:
||The proposed activity definition is consistent with other industries and would not result in different treatment depending on how a business is structured.
The proposed activity definition does not enable intermediate inputs to be bought in.
|The desirability of there being no overlap between activity definitions.||The proposed activity definition does not overlap with other activities.|
|Any other matters the Minister considers relevant, including activity definitions proposed to be used in Australia.||The proposed activity definition reflects the activity definition for production of chlorine gas and sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) solution in Australia.|
We recommend that the proposed activity definition for caustic soda should remain substantively unchanged.
