18 Fee rate thresholds—Step 3 of load-based fee calculation
(1) To calculate the fee rate threshold for each assessable pollutant discharged during a licence fee period for a licence, multiply the applicable threshold factor for the pollutant from Schedule 1 by the quantity of activity during the licence fee period (using the units of measure specified in relation to the activity in Schedule 1).Note.For example, if ceramic production produced 20,000 tonnes of bricks, to calculate the fee rate threshold for fluoride, it would be necessary to multiply 0.12 (the threshold factor shown for that activity in Schedule 1) by 20,000 (as the units of measure for ceramic production shown in Schedule 1 is tonnes) giving a result of 2,400 kilograms.(2) If the activity has more than one classification in Schedule 1, the fee rate threshold for each assessable pollutant is the sum of the fee rate thresholds for each of those classifications.
