Best Practice Regulation Making
Regulations are essential for the proper functioning of society and the economy. The challenge for Government is to deliver effective and efficient regulation – regulation that is effective in addressing an identified problem and efficient in terms of delivering benefits while minimising the costs to the economy.
To help deliver better regulation both the Australian Government and the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) have best practice regulation making processes in place. Central to both processes is the preparation of a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS), which documents the regulatory impact analysis and the process undertaken.
The Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) has been assigned a central role in improving the quality of regulation by administering the best practice regulation requirements for both the Australian Government and COAG.
