Guidelines for Setting Charges in the Public Sector -April 2017

2.6  Meeting the Regulatory Impact Analysis requirements

Any changes to cost recovery regimes that are made via regulation are subject to the Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) requirements. A Cost Recovery Regulatory Impact Statement template is available on the Treasury website. For projects that require initial setting up of empowering legislation and then the subsequent setting of fees, this will be a two-stage process. Thoroughly completing this template should ensure that the RIA requirements are met. A separate RIS template is not required.

Further information on the RIA requirements can be found in the Treasury's Regulatory Impact Analysis Handbook. (
