The Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) for broadening and enhancing reef protection regulations<https://www.qld.gov.au/environment/agriculture/sustainable-farming/reef-regulations> is now open for public consultation, until 3 November, 2017.
The regulatory proposals were outlined in a public discussion paper in March 2017. Feedback from the discussion paper and the latest science has helped refine the regulatory proposals and preparation of the RIS, which assesses the costs and benefits of the proposals. Submissions received on the RIS will help inform any decision the Queensland Government makes on whether to move forward with changes to the existing reef protection regulations. For more information go to https://www.qld.gov.au/environment/agriculture/sustainable-farming/reef-regulations .
Submissions must be made in writing and close on Friday, 3 November. All queries and submissions should be directed via email to officeoftheGBR@ehp.qld.gov.au.Back to list
