Our compliance team undertakes inspections to ensure projects such as mines, industrial sites, major developments and infrastructure meet the strict conditions included in their approvals.
Our compliance officers work closely with the community, local councils and other state and federal government agencies to educate companies, investigate potential breaches and carry out enforcement where necessary.
Enforcement can range from negotiating practical solutions to issuing penalty notices and, in serious cases, criminal prosecutions.
As well as conducting monitoring and enforcement activities, the compliance team plays an important role in educating companies, community members and other stakeholders about the Department's compliance work.
