Services and Eligibility
The Agency offers three service levels to ensure proponents receive advice and assistance tailored to their project’s stage of development. As a starting point this can include estimating a project’s regulatory obligations through to, at an more advanced stage, working with regulators and the proponent to settle agreed obligations ahead of making a final investment decision.
All Agency services are free of charge for eligible projects and carry no obligations. Any project information provided to or held by the Agency is treated as commercial-in-confidence.
Eligibility is based on levels of investment. Major projects that attract investment in excess of $50 million automatically qualify for the Agency’s full services. The Agency also assists projects below this threshold and recognises that these projects can offer significant economic benefits and employment opportunities in local areas. Please contact us to find out if your project is eligible.
The Agency also provides general regulatory advice to proponents, as well as any other interested parties, on an ad hoc basis. If the Agency isn’t able to answer your question straight away it will work with the relevant Commonwealth regulator or other levels of government to obtain answer as quickly as possible
