2014 Spring Repeal Day

The Australian Government has a plan to cut $1 billion in red tape every year. As part of that plan, there will be two parliamentary repeal days every year to cut unnecessary and costly legislation and regulation.

The 2014 Spring Repeal Day is on Wednesday 29 October and will repeal nearly 1,000 pieces and more than 7,200 pages of legislation and regulation. This is in addition to the 2014 Autumn Repeal Day, which repealed over 10,000 pieces and 50,000 pages of legislation and regulation. This brings the total net deregulatory savings to date to over $2.1 billion.

International Standards & Risk Assessment

As part of the Government's red tape objective, portfolios and regulators will assess opportunities for greater acceptance of international standards and risk assessments, the Prime Minister, the Hon Tony Abbott MP, has announced.

Members of the public are being invited to share your examples of unnecessary divergence from international standards on this website.

Regulator Performance Framework

The Government has committed to reducing the cost of unnecessary or inefficient regulation imposed on individuals, business and community organisations by at least $1 billion a year. An important part of this commitment is the development of a Framework to review the performance of Commonwealth regulators.

The submission process has now closed. We thank all those who contributed for their valuable feedback.

Guide to Regulation

This is the Australian Government’s Guide to Regulation.

It has been written to help change the way policy makers think about regulation and to inform the consultation and policy making processes.

Families, businesses and community organisations pay the price for poor regulation and the purpose of this Guide is to help make better regulation, not more regulation.
