Our work to protect the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is guided by a range of plans, regulations and legislation.
Legislation and regulations
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act 1975 is the primary Act relating to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Other Commonwealth and Queensland Government legislation also applies.
We work in the policy framework of the Australian Government, and our Board approves all our policies and position statements.
Freedom of Information
Under the Australian Government’s deregulation agenda the government committed to streamlining legislation and regulation across all government departments and agencies. We are looking for opportunities to streamline regulatory tools and processes while ensuring high standards are maintained for protecting the Reef. We will also report against the Australian Government Regulator Performance Framework.
