Draft Aboriginal Heritage Regulations 2016 & Guidelines

South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy (SACOME) is pleased to have this opportunity to make a submission to the Department of State Development – Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation (DSD-AAR) on the draft Aboriginal Heritage Regulations 2016 and Guidelines.

SACOME supported the amendments to the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1988 (the Act) introduced by the passing of the Aboriginal Heritage (Miscellaneous) Amendment Act 2016 in March 2016. SACOME views these changes as very positive for both industry and traditional owners, as they improved the complementarity between the Act and the native title system.
