Earth Resources Regulation Continuous Improvement Project

In July 2017, the Treasurer directed the Commissioner for Better Regulation to undertake a Continuous Improvement Project with Earth Resources Regulation. The project was tasked with identifying practical steps for improving regulation of the earth resources sector in Victoria: to help to secure the sustainable development of the sector within a framework of best practice regulation and industry and community engagement.

The project was initiated to implement improvements in processes as soon as possible, and to make recommendations which set a clear pathway for operational, regulatory and legislative reforms.

The Commissioner's final report from the project is provided below. The report includes:

  • administrative and operational changes being made by Earth Resources Regulation; and
  • recommendations for government's consideration, including regulatory improvements that involve other regulators across government. 

An implementation plan is being developed in partnership with the Minister for Planning, for release in early 2018.

Accessible versions of the above documents will be available shortly.
