The Alligator Rivers Region Advisory Committee
The Alligator Rivers Region Advisory Committee (ARRAC), established under the Environment Protection (Alligator Rivers Regions) Act 1978, is a stakeholder forum for information exchange and policy consultation in relation to the effects of uranium mining on the Alligator Rivers Region environment. Public disclosure of environmental performance data through ARRAC is an important means of ensuring transparency and enhancing trust between relevant stakeholder organisations, and through this, providing assurance to the broader community that the environment remains protected from uranium mining related impacts.
Stakeholder organisations provide information reports to each ARRAC meeting to assist knowledge sharing and reduce potential for misinformation. These reports usually include a summary and interpretation of monitoring data, details of periodic environmental reports from mining companies and the outcomes of Supervising Scientist audit and assessment activity.
