Compliance monitoring is an important component in improving our regulatory capability.

Information from compliance activities is a vital input into the regulatory cycle, providing valuable information to encourage continual improvement and enhance public health and environmental and water resource outcomes.

Compliance monitoring information may be used to improve statutory instruments, drive decisions on new or amended applications and guide development and modification of policies, guidelines and regulations.

Compliance monitoring is important to ensure stakeholders meet their regulatory requirements and supports better management of the environment.

These reports detail our compliance monitoring sub-programs and priorities.
