Regulatory Strategy

​​​The Regulatory Strategy 2024-2026 outlines the activities the EPA regulates and our regulatory approach. The EPA takes a risk-based approach to prioritising its regulatory work and making the best use of its resources. The EPA applies best-practice regulatory methods to support, monitor and enforce compliance in accordance with the EPA's Compliance and Enforcement Policy.

As well as day-to-day regulation of the activities for which the EPA is responsible, four focus areas are included in the Regulatory Strategy 2024-2026. These focus areas concern persistent, complex, and/or emerging risks and have been selected for targeted action over the period of the strategy. ​
