Regulatory Impact Analysis
Page updated 3 April 2013
The government wants to ensure that proposals involving regulatory options are subject to careful and robust Regulatory Impact Analysis to ensure that the problem cannot be adequately addressed through private arrangements, and that a regulatory solution is required in the public interest.
The government’s Regulatory Impact Analysis framework encourages an evidence-based approach to policy development which helps ensure that all practical options for addressing the problem have been considered and the benefits of the preferred option not only exceed the costs, but will also deliver the highest level of net benefit.
