Regulator Performance Framework

The Regulator Performance Framework (the Framework) has been established to assess regulators' performance while carrying out their regulatory functions and in their interactions with industry and the community.

The Framework aims to improve the way regulators operate, increase accountability and transparency while reducing the costs incurred by business from the administration of regulations.

The Office of Transport Security (OTS) has consolidated the Regulator Performance Framework key performance indicators with its corporate performance measures to assess and evaluate its performance.

OTS' performance measures for 2016–17 are:

  1. Industry understanding of their regulatory obligations and security risks.
  2. International standards improve aviation and maritime security in Australia and the region.
  3. Percentage of activities completed as set out in the National Compliance Plan.


The Office of Transport Security (OTS) is undertaking an annual self-assessment of our performance against the Regulator Performance Framework (RPF) for the period of 1 July 2016–30 June 2017.

OTS would like to thank all industry participants that responded to the 2017 short survey.

Responses will help OTS identify and take necessary steps in addressing any key performance issues. The OTS Performance Report 2016-17 will be available early 2018.
