The Conservation Regulator will report in October each year on its performance for the previous financial year. This will include information on guidelines and standards published, engagement activities, enforcement action taken, and the results of any prosecutions conducted.

While the Conservation Regulator is still developing processes and targets for our risk-based compliance monitoring program, in the future we hope to be able to set targets as to the number and/or percentage of compliance monitoring activities or particular permission types.

At this stage, the Conservation Regulator will improve its transparency by reporting the number of activities it undertakes in these areas.
