The Mining Act Inspectorate undertakes compliance audits of mining operations and exploration activities to assess whether title holders are meeting their compliance requirements under the Mining Act 1992.

Where non-compliances are identified, enforcement action may be taken in accordance with the Regulator's compliance and enforcement framework (PDF, 537.75 KB).

Audit reports may also identify opportunities for improvement to strengthen the compliance management activities of the title holder.

We undertake a compliance audit program to assess the level of operator compliance with Regulations. View the compliance audit program report:

The checklists below provide an indication of some of the issues the Regulator’s auditors consider when undertaking audits onsite. If you hold an authorisation, you may use these checklists to assist you to identify requirements that apply to your particular authorisation and help you to ensure you are meeting your statutory obligations.
