Annual Regulatory Plan



The following document provides the past regulatory changes from the 2011-12 financial year, as well as the planned regulatory changes for the 2012-13 financial year.

Regulatory plans provide business and the community with ready access to information about past and planned changes to Commonwealth regulation, and make it easier for business to take part in the development of regulation that affects them. Regulatory plans are prepared by those Commonwealth agencies that have responsibility for business regulation and are published on their websites. Each regulatory plan deals with changes within each agency’s area of responsibility and contains information about: changes to business regulation which have occurred since the beginning of the previous financial year; and activities planned in the current financial year which could lead to changes to business regulation.
