Ministerial Statement of Expectations 2018-20

The Minister for Resources has issued a Statement of Expectations (SoE) for Earth Resources Regulation to continue its program of reform.

Target areas for improvement during 2018-20 include:

  • streamlining the work plan approvals pathway
  • developing guidance, processes and procedures
  • staff training
  • ICT systems

By meeting the Statement of Expectations, Earth Resources Regulation will have:

  • adopted an outcomes-based approach to regulation based on recognised performance standards, while providing greater flexibility for industry to comply with the standards;
  • embedded stakeholder and community engagement functions as a core responsibility of all staff;
  • implemented improvements to the regulatory system; and
  • boosted its technical capability and capacity to assess applications and conduct compliance.
These measures will improve the regulatory system for the minerals and extractive sectors by simplifying processes whilst ensuring that regulatory standards are upheld.

An evaluation of Earth Resources Regulation's delivery of these improvements will be undertaken and a report will be released in December 2019
