Gas industry: Quality control and assurance

The NSW Government is committed to the effective, efficient, data driven and transparent regulation of the onshore gas industry in NSW.

To facilitate this, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been developed between the EPA and the agencies involved in the assessment, approval and conditioning of onshore gas activities and establishes systems and processes for performing their roles effectively and seamlessly.

These agencies are the Division of Mining, Exploration and Geoscience within the Department of Regional NSW, the Department of Planning and Environment and the Natural Resources Access Regulator.

The MOU also includes provisions that will help the community understand and navigate the onshore gas industry regulatory framework and will hold the government agencies involved and industry accountable for outcomes.
