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 article examines the impact of judicial review and civil enforcement on government accountability in pollution law.
