Regulatory Impact Statements Information Release

Page updated 3 Sep 2014

To help ensure that the regulatory process is open and transparent, Regulatory Impact Statements (RISs) 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 RISs are published on the responsible department's website, and here on the Treasury website.

A RIS 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.

News Feed

A news feed is now available for RISs, allowing you to subscribe to receive notification when RISs are added to this website:
