Consultation Regulation Impact Statements

A Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) is prepared for the purpose of consulting with interested parties. It incorporates all formal elements of a RIS, including a full cost benefit analysis. Interested parties are invited to comment on any aspect of the Consultation RIS. For example, interested parties could provide comment on whether the description of the problem captures the essence of the issues or to suggest other options that are viable that can address the problem. Interested parties are particularly encouraged to comment on the impacts of the options – both the costs and the benefits – and how the regulatory proposal will work in practice. Comments on the Consultation RIS will be included in a Final RIS for the information of decision-makers.

Each Consultation RIS is assessed by the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) and can only be released for public consultation when advice is received from OBPR that it complies with the COAG requirements for best practice regulation.

There is one Consultation RIS currently open for public comment.
