Queensland Regulatory Simplification Plan
The Queensland Regulatory Simplification Plan 2009-13 outlines how the Government will review the existing stock of Queensland regulation to achieve the Queensland Government’s initial target for reducing the compliance burden to business and the administrative burden to government by $150 million per year by the end of 2012-13. Agencies are participating in one of two 3-year review phases beginning in 2009 (Phase 1) or 2010 (Phase 2).
Agency regulatory simplification plans are a way to identify opportunities to reduce unnecessary and excessive legislative requirements, and streamline administrative and procurement processes. The aim is to give time and money back to business, community and government to invest in pursuits that promote productivity, facilitate innovation and increase competitiveness.
Agency regulatory simplification plans are to be action oriented to reflect changing government priorities and stakeholder consultation. To ensure agency regulatory simplification plans address the real issues of stakeholders, we are seeking your input to inform future reform directions and development of regulatory reform initiatives to ensure they deliver significant and tangible benefits to business, community and government.
