Design and requirements for a new guideline

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Publication details

Australian Government, 2018

New guideline documents can be developed and included under the National Water Quality Management Strategy (NWQMS)​, to provide advice about water quality management ​​not covered by existing guidelines. Make sure you have checked that no current guidelines​ exist for your proposed topic.

Benefits of sharing your new guideline document under the NWQMS include:

  • promoting a consistent, national approach to the management of significant water quality issues
  • reducing duplication and inconsistencies, particularly when it comes to cross-border water resources
  • providing the best available information and tools for use across Australia.

The Design and Requirements for a New Guideline is available to help proponents (such as a committee group, government body or organisation) meet requirements for a new guideline under the NWQMS.

This includes information on key principles to be met, specific requirements and approval processes for proposed guidelines.
