The Department of Agriculture has a wide-reaching impact and our decisions balance a range of commercial and community interests.
Sharing information and seeking feedback from our clients, stakeholders and the community helps us to develop and manage our policies, programmes and regulations, and to provide our services.
We undertake public consultations so you can:
- see where your work intersects with ours
- understand its impact on you
- collaborate and work in partnership with us.
We are committed to consulting in a genuine and timely way with affected businesses, community organisations and individuals. A genuine consultation process ensures that we can consider the real-world impact of our options and ensure that every practical and viable policy alternative is been considered in our decision-making.
Consultation is also particularly important in helping us to quantify the regulatory burden of proposed regulatory measures as part of the government’s regulatory reform agenda.
