Proposed amendment 2013
The Bureau is preparing an amendment to the Regulations for 2013. The amendment will introduce water information format requirements to the Regulations. It will also add a new category of water information for the National Groundwater Information System.
In May 2012, amendments refined the obligations on water information holders and the subcategories of water information that must be provided to the Bureau. These amendments took effect on 5 July 2012.
The July 2009 amendments removed Schedule 2 (Persons and Classes of Persons) and Schedule 4 (Commercially Sensitive Sites) from the Regulations allowing them to be maintained on the Bureau's website.
