Regulation of dam safety is an important factor in the prevention of disasters, and concerns not only pluvial or fluvial floods but is also an essential element in industrial operations that use tailing dams. Many countries have a long history of regulatory frameworks for dam safety (Bradlow et al., 2002). Important aspects include the legal form of the regulation, the institutional arrangements for regulating dam safety, the powers of the regulating entity, and the contents of the regulatory scheme. Historically some countries have focused on the safety aspect only, whereas others have also included dam construction, operation, maintenance, and surveillance.
