Compliance policy

This Compliance Policy describes the general framework on which the Game Management Authority (GMA) bases its compliance activities. This document will be updated and amended from time to time to reflect changes in the compliance and operational focus of the GMA.

'Compliance' means obeying the law and regulations designed to ensure sustainable, safe and humane hunting. While compliance with the law is a personal responsibility of individuals, the GMA undertakes a range of activities on behalf of the Victorian community to encourage responsible behaviour and uses a balance of regulation and guidance to promote compliance.

The Compliance Policy sets out the approach the GMA will take to its regulatory role to encourage compliance with the hunting and game management laws it administers.
