How we set our regulatory priorities

While we work across all of our regulatory responsibilities, identifying our regulatory priorities helps us to focus our effort on what is most important. It also helps our community and stakeholders to understand what we consider to be a priority. 

We use a data and intelligence driven approach to determine the most significant risks to the environment, which form our priorities.

We do this by:

  • collecting, collating and analysing data
  • identifying new and emerging trends
  • conducting research
  • consulting with internal and external stakeholders
  • working with our regulatory partners.

We have identified a number of driving factors and challenges that continue to impact on the long term health of our natural environment.
