Part of a package of 18 bills to implement a carbon pricing mechanism, the bill amends the

Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas (Import Levy) Act 1995
to: apply, in addition to existing levies imposed by the Act, an equivalent carbon charge to the import of synthetic greenhouse gases (SCGs) and equipment which contains SCG; provide for exemptions from the levy or the carbon price component of the levy in certain circumstances; and amend the long title of the Act.
