Journal Article


Abstract


  • This article is the first of two related articles which examine the extent to which

    administrative law mechanisms can be, and have been, utilised to ensure the accountability

    of regulators for decisions made under the core piece of New South Wales pollution

    legislation -the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 (NSW) (POEO Act).

    This article considers the ability of merits review to hold regulators to account. A forthcoming
