STANDARD TITLE INSTRUMENTS

 

Through a project the NSW Government calls ‘Improved Management of Exploration Regulation’ the control of mineral, coal and petroleum exploration in NSW is being overhauled to streamline rules across all types of exploration activities. Under the IMER exploration title documents will be simplified and standardised, the aim being to increase clarity and fairness for title holders and to make it easier for the community to understand conditions on exploration licenses.

 

Overview

 

Under the IMER title documentation has been simplified and standardised. All title rights and obligations have been integrated into one simple and clear document.

There are three standard title instruments one for each industry being minerals, petroleum and coal tailored to the different legislation and regulations that govern these areas.

 

This means that 158 conditions across petroleum, coal and minerals will be replaced by around 13 new conditions that will apply to all activities undertaken under a license.

 

Each instrument is broadly similar containing only minor variations owing to different laws governing coal, petroleum and other minerals.
