Great barrier reef marine park regulations 2019
Remaking of Sunsetting Instrument without Significant Amendments – Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority
On 21 February 2019 the Governor‑General of the Commonwealth of Australia remade the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Regulations 1983 as Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Regulations 2019 without significant amendments. The Regulations were scheduled to sunset on 1 April 2019.
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Regulations 2019 are the primary regulations in force under the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act 1975. They include a number of offence provisions, in addition to provisions on matters such as applications for and the granting of permissions, compulsory pilotage, environmental management charge, plans of management, and review rights.
Consistent with Government best practice regulation requirements for sunsetting instruments, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, after consultation with Government bodies, industry and the general public has assessed the Regulation as operating effectively and efficiently. Therefore, a Regulation Impact Statement is not required for remaking the Regulations.
