Water and Environmental Regulation regulatory documents

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation has implemented a Policy Framework initiative to classify all documents across our business areas into a clear and structured document hierarchy and governance model.

This framework distinguishes between documents that specify:

pyramid showing from top to bottom; legislation, policy, guideline, procedure.
  • mandatory requirements
  • those that provide high level departmental policy positions
  • other documents that provide procedural guidance or information on technical and legal matters and our work.

The Policy Framework page provides further information on how the department and our stakeholders should apply our documents based on where they sit in the framework's hierarchy.

As part of this project, the department is also reviewing its suite of documents to determine which documents should be updated in the future to better align the content into the hierarchy.

The following lists our industry regulation, native vegetation regulation and water regulation policy, guideline, and procedure documents, based on where they fit into the hierarchy.
