Water Regulations 2008 – Metadata and Contextual Information Requirements



The Metadata and Contextual Information Requirements document lists the metadata and contextual elements named organisations are required to give to the Bureau when they give their water information.

Regulation 7.11 requires named organisations to give a copy of metadata and contextual information to the Bureau in accordance with the Metadata and Contextual Information Requirements document at the same time as they give their water information.

Please note: In the first instance, the Metadata and Contextual Information Requirements document includes metadata and contextual information requirements to the extent they were previously specified in the Regulations. The document details the metadata that was removed from the subcategory descriptions when the May 2012 Regulations amendment took effect, as well as any requirements related to the particular subcategory that were previously in Category 10. Consequently the metadata that organisations must give to the Bureau are currently no different to the pre-amendment requirements.

In the future, the Bureau will notify organisations when new metadata and contextual element lists are added to the Metadata and Contextual Information Requirements document. Organisations must comply with the new lists within six months of that notification.
