The Commission’s Extractives Supply Chain Review final report and the Government's response were published on 26 November 2020.
The Commission was tasked in February 2020 to evaluate and identify barriers and reform opportunities in the approvals process for quarries, in the use of their outputs in construction and elsewhere, and rehabilitation and post-closure land use.
The Commission reviewed regulation, policies and practices across the extractives supply chain, with a focus on co-regulation and operating approvals that impact on quarries and supply chain businesses. Balancing competing public and private interests, and ensuring the interests of the state are met were prominent themes of the review.
The Commission thanks the many contributions from quarry operators, regulators, industry and professional associations, supply chain businesses and consultants, and other stakeholders.
