The IGWC will receive a statement of expectations from the Minister directing the activities of the office. An annual workplan will be developed which will outline the work to be undertaken by the office.

The Inspector-General’s legislative functions can be found at Water Act 2007 s 215C

The Inspector-General will not duplicate the roles of existing Commonwealth or state government agencies in addressing instances of non-compliance and/or illegal activity.


This work plan reflects the Inspector-General’s immediate approach to ensure water is managed in accordance with the rules set by the Basin Plan and report the facts to the community.

The Inspector-General has a proactive approach to address the risks in water compliance and areas where the office has concerns about water management and compliance.

As an independent regulator, the Inspector General has discretion in performing compliance and enforcement functions, and at any time may use his powers and choose to change his priorities beyond those published in the work plan.
