We’re committed to improving the productivity and competitiveness of Australian industry. The Australian Government’s Deregulation Agenda seeks to remove inefficient or ineffective regulation to reduce costs on individuals, businesses and the wider community.
Our Industry Officer’s Guide to Regulation Reform [416KB PDF] [2.4MB DOCX] demonstrates how policy officers reduce regulatory burdens in their work by analysing all suitable options.
Reporting on the Deregulation Agenda provides updates on the government’s progress on delivering regulatory savings.
In 2014, we provided a separate Industry Portfolio 2014 Annual Deregulation report [1.2MB PDF] [117KB DOCX].
Best Practice Regulation Report
Regulator Performance Framework
Our portfolio regulators assess their performance against the key performance indicators (KPIs) in the Regulator Performance Framework (RPF).
The RPF consists of six outcomes-based KPIs covering:
- reducing regulatory burden
- risk-based and proportionate approaches
- efficient and coordinated monitoring
- continuous improvement
Our regulators must look at how they operate and the burden they create when administering regulation.
RPF self-assessment reports
Our regulators provide annual self-assessment reports that are externally validated by stakeholders. The Growth Centres Advisory Council is the stakeholder for three of our regulators, and others have alternative mechanisms. These reports show how well regulators are meeting their RPF KPIs and highlight areas for improvement.
Portfolio Regulation Impact Statements can be found on the Office of Best Practice Regulation’s website.
