This study evaluates regulation of the resources sector, identifying issues and leading-practice approaches that address them. The primary focus is on how regulation is designed, administered and enforced, and whether there is scope to reduce unnecessary burdens created by regulatory processes and practices without diluting environmental and other regulated outcomes. Indeed, by undermining community support for the sector, weakening regulatory regimes would ultimately be counterproductive.
