Towards 2020 goals

Towards 2020 Regulatory Strategy vision

What are our goals?

The vision of a safe and healthy resources sector is supported by three key goals:

  • world-leading regulation
  • smarter systems
  • well-informed industry

Each is built on core elements, that work together to achieve the overarching goal, and ultimately the Department's Towards 2020 vision.
