The RMA Quality Planning Resource

Welcome to the Quality Planning Website

The Quality Planning website (QP website) was launched in 2001 to promote good practice by sharing knowledge about all aspects of practice under the RMA. The QP website is now the primary tool for delivering robust information on RMA processes and environmental policy to resource management practitioners.
