Regulatory Impact Statements Information Release

Page updated 15 Sep 2017

Cabinet changed the Regulatory Impact Assessment requirements, including the form in which Regulatory Impact Analysis is published, as of 30 June 2017. The transition period ends on 7 August 2017. Already published RISs and those published in the interim period following the old process will be published and retained here. The new Regulatory Impact Assessment page will be published in due course.

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

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.
