national passenger processing committee (nppc)
Customs chairs the NPPC, which advises on policy relating to passenger processing. It also coordinates the activities of the nine Commonwealth departments and agencies represented on the NPPC. A subcommittee of the NPPC was established in 1997, with representatives of the airline industry and several of Australia's international airports.
Major issues addressed by the committee during 2000-01 included the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games and increased quarantine intervention measures.
