MfE Presentation on New Enforcement Tools

The resource management reform programme has been an opportunity to take a step back and evaluate our approach to compliance monitoring and enforcement. A range of changes to the way we manage risk, deter offending and punish and remediate due to noncompliance are likely to be made within the Natural and Built Environments Act. Of particular interest will be the transition in practice from one regime to another, a process that will take several years. The Ministry’s RM Reform compliance team will present a short overview of proposed changes and invite questions from the floor for discussion. The Bill will be moving its way through Parliament, so the scope and focus of the session will need to mindful of process and confidentiality requirements.
