Partnerships

 

The Clean Energy Regulator works in partnership with other Australian Government agencies that have regulatory responsibilities under climate change law. This includes sharing relevant information, gathering intelligence and referring matters for law enforcement. The Clean Energy Regulator also supplies information to other Commonwealth, state and territory government organisations, to enable them to perform their functions or powers, including advising ministers, administering programs and collecting statistics.

The three agencies listed in Table 2.3 have been selected to demonstrate the range of ways that Clean Energy Regulator information is used by other agencies. Each of these agencies uses information for a different purpose.
