Notice of Review

The South Australian Government has asked the Commission to undertake a review to “…evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of State and local government regulation, policies and practices for the extractives supply chain and identify reform options to improve the efficiency of regulation on the extractives industry – and broader construction industry to enhance output and employment.”

The Terms of Reference for this Review require that the Commission “…consult with stakeholders, including: businesses operating in South Australia; relevant business associations and industry groups (such as Cement, Concrete and Aggregates Australia and the Institute of Quarrying Australia); the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure; the Department of Energy and Mining; the Industry Advocate; Local Government Association; and the State Procurement Board.”

The Commission will shortly release an Issues Paper that sets out the Commission’s initial understanding of the matters to be addressed. This paper will seek input from interested parties, both on the matters identified as well as any other relevant issues.

The Premier has directed the Commission to issue a draft report outlining recommendations for consultative purposes and that the final report be made available no later than 6 August 2020.
