Compliance and Enforcement Approach

Suggested Reading Suggested Reading

08 May 2015

The Clean Energy Regulator encourages scheme participants to voluntarily comply with legislative requirements. Our approach is outlined in the compliance, education and enforcement policy and is based on the following considerations:

  • assisting scheme participants to understand their rights and obligations through education and training programs
  • supporting those who want to do the right thing and, where appropriate, incorporating feedback into enhancement of systems and processes
  • exercising monitoring and enforcement powers independently in the public interest with integrity and professionalism
  • ensuring that decision-making takes place within rigorous corporate governance processes
  • actively pursue scheme participants who opportunistically or deliberately contravene the law
  • ensuring regulatory responses are proportionate to the risks posed by any non-compliance and take into account the conduct of scheme participants, including their compliance history, and
  • ensuring the investigative process and the resolution of enforcement matters is conducted as efficiently as possible.

Refer to the compliance, education and enforcement policy for more information about our compliance and enforcement approach.

We work in close partnership with other agencies that have regulatory responsibilities under climate change and other legislation. This includes sharing of relevant information, intelligence gathering, and referring matters for law enforcement.
