- Consultation paper and public meeting presentation
The public consultation process included a consultation paper and a series of public meetings. The objectives of the consultation process were to:
- Ensure the government has a comprehensive understanding of potential impacts and implications associated with the proposed regulations.
- Gather and use stakeholder feedback to ensure the design and operation of the proposed regulations is appropriate.
- Improve awareness and expectations among stakeholders of Scheme, especially for those who will have obligations under the proposed regulations.
Public meetings, attended by more than 300 people, were held from 15 March to 4 April 2011 in all capital cities and selected regional areas (Ballina, Bendigo and Townsville). These meetings provided an opportunity for attendees to seek clarification and provide feedback on the proposed Regulations. An opportunity was also provided to individuals and organisations to hold face-to-face meetings with Australian Government officials and 32 of these meetings were held.
