Principles for maintaining the Water Regulations

The Bureau maintains and develops Part 7 of the Water Regulations in accordance with a set of overarching principles.

These principles govern the way we manage legislative requirements affecting stakeholder organisations. The Bureau is conscious that organisations incur costs in order to comply with the Water Regulations. We seek to minimise the impact of changes, and foster a cooperative approach that is transparent and treats data providers equally.
