This is the Inspector-General for Emergency Management’s (IGEM) second report on the implementation of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission recommendations and actions. It includes implementation progress from 2 May 2015 to 20 May 2016.
The report is IGEM’s assessment of the status of the seven recommendations and 11 actions reported as ‘ongoing’ in its 2015 Progress Report.
In its 2016 Progress Report, IGEM reported of the 11 actions remaining in 2015, seven actions were determined as closed and two actions deemed as completed. The two remaining ongoing and inter-related actions will continue to be monitored by IGEM however their completion will be reported directly to the minister.
Therefore this report concluded IGEM’s responsibility for annual VBRC implementation reporting.
The 2016 Progress Report was tabled in Parliament on 13 October 2016.
