We welcome parliamentary scrutiny as a significant and appropriate element of governance and a positive opportunity for constructive dialogue.
We report to the parliament across the following areas:
We are committed to transparent decision-making processes and to providing access to a fair and objective procedure for the internal review of our decisions.
An internal review of a decision is the process of reviewing a primary decision that was made within the agency by an officer of the agency. This process aims to test the merits of the decision and either affirm or vary the primary decision.
The law provides that a decision recipient can seek an internal review of certain statutory decisions under the
Australian National Registry of Emissions Units Act 2011, the
Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011, the
Clean Energy Act 2011, the
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000, and their associated regulations, before going to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).
National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 and associated regulations, there is no statutory requirement to seek an internal review of a decision.
Further information is available on our internal review of
decisions page. Alternatively, you can contact us about our internal decision review process at
