Regulatory Impact Assessment Information Release

Page updated 14 Dec 2017

Cabinet changed the Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) requirements, including the form in which Regulatory Impact Analysis is published, as of 30 June 2017. The transition period ended on 7 August 2017. Already published Regulatory Impact Statements (RISs) and those published in the interim period following the old process will be published and retained at Regulatory Impact Statements. The new RIAs will be published on this page.

See Impact Analysis for Regulatory Proposals for further details of the changes.

To help ensure that the regulatory process is open and transparent, RIAs prepared to support the consideration of regulatory proposals are published at the time the relevant bill is introduced to Parliament or the regulation is gazetted, or at the time of Ministerial release

The RIAs are published on the responsible department's website, and here on the Treasury website.

A RIA provides a high-level summary of the problem being addressed, the options and their associated costs and benefits, the consultation undertaken, and the proposed arrangements for implementation and review.

To publish a RIA on the Treasury website, please complete the Publication Form and email it to the Regulatory Quality Team at ria@treasury.govt.nz

RIAs authored by the Treasury are available in HTML and Adobe PDF formats. RIAs authored by another agency will be provided in Adobe PDF format with a link to where the RIA is available on the agency's own website. Using PDF Files
