Regulation Impact Statement - Department of the Environment and Energy

On 21 March 2018 the Minister for the Environment and Energy tabled five management plans for 44 Australian Marine Parks in Parliament. The objectives of these plans are to provide for:

  1. the protection and conservation of biodiversity and other natural, cultural and heritage values of marine parks; and
  2. ecologically sustainable use and enjoyment of the natural resources within marine parks, where this is consistent with objective (1).

A Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) was prepared and certified by the Director of National Parks and has been assessed by the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) as compliant with the Government’s requirements and consistent with best practice.

The RIS has estimated that these management plans will reduce regulatory burden by $0.137 million per year. OBPR has agreed to this estimate.
