Regulatory Policy Coordination

We are responsible for co-ordinating the Australian Government’s regulatory policy priorities across all portfolios and work closely with Regulatory Reform Units in each Australian Government portfolio. We also work with regulatory policy areas in state and territory governments.

Each Australian Government portfolio Regulatory Reform Unit is led by a senior executive officer to drive their portfolio’s regulatory reforms, and to report on their portfolio’s progress in implementing the  Government’s regulatory policy and governance priorities.
