The MDBA today released its compliance priorities for 2018–19, as it continues to work to strengthen compliance and enforcement across the Basin.

Acting MDBA Chief Executive, Carl Binning, said the priorities would ensure that efforts and resources were directed to areas of strategic importance and high risk, and underlined the MDBA’s ongoing commitment to delivering on the outcomes of the Basin-wide review of compliance.

“In 2018–19, we’ll be focusing on five key areas to achieve better compliance and enforcement outcomes, such as accurate reporting of water trade prices, testing the robustness of compliance and enforcement of unauthorised water take, and looking at how reporting of real-time usage could help protect environmental water,” Mr Binning said.
