The Clean Energy Regulator monitors compliance with climate change laws to determine compliance levels, identify possible non-compliance and assess the education or enforcement action that may be required. We do this by gathering information, conducting independent audits and undertaking inspections. We also hold enforcement powers which include:
Criminal sanctions also apply for persons or organisations found to have breached offence provisions contained in laws we administer, or found to have engaged in dishonest or fraudulent conduct in connection with schemes established by those laws.
The Clean Energy Regulator combines the functions of the former Greenhouse Energy Data Officer, Renewable Energy Regulator and Carbon Farming Initiative Administrator. Transitional arrangements allow enforcement activities commenced under the former arrangements to continue under the Clean Energy Regulator.
Refer to the
compliance, education and enforcement policy for more information about monitoring and enforcement powers.
