Regulatory challenges and working with industry.
1 April 2015

One of the challenges for all regulators, and a challenge that’s been growing in recent years, is how best to oversee industry operation so that it stays safe but still has room to develop. The regulator has to be like the touch judge in an NRL game – ready to make a call as soon as the ball goes out of bounds, but otherwise letting players run the ball as much as possible.
