What we’ve been asked to look at
The Australian Government has asked the Commission to conduct a study to examine regulations affecting business investment in the resources sector in Australia. The study will identify effective regulatory approaches, highlight examples of best practice regulation in Australia and internationally, and examine where successful relationships have been developed between the resources sector and the communities in which resources companies operate.
The Commission will consult with industry participants, government agencies and other interested parties.Read the Terms of Reference Media release
