Regulator Performance Framework

The Australian Government is committed to reducing the cost of unnecessary or inefficient regulation imposed on individuals, business and community organisations.

A Regulator Performance Framework was developed in late 2014 to support Australian Government regulators to measure and improve their performance.

During 1 July 2015-30 June 2016 the Department undertook an assessment of achievement against the Regulator Performance Framework indicators.

See the following assessment report for the Coastal Trading (Revitalising Australian Shipping) Act 2012.
