Legislation

We undertake a broad range of activities and many of its operations are regulated.

There are many acts, both Commonwealth and State, that have a direct impact on us and involve significant compliance obligations. We have in place a legislative compliance system that sets out applicable legislative requirements and provides updates when the legislation is amended or repealed or new legislation is enacted.
