Several authorities governing and regulating the Australian mining industry include Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, Geoscience Australia, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO), Minerals Council of Australia (MCA), Division of Resources and Energy, Department of Planning and Environment, Department of Primary Industry and Resources, Department of Natural Resources and Mines, and Department of Energy and Mining, among many others.
