COAG Consultation Regulation Impact Statement – The Attorney-General’s Department

On 6 May 2016, the Attorney-General’s Department released a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) for consultation examining ways to address the diversion of chemicals and equipment towards the production of illicit drugs.

The Consultation RIS examined the introduction of a nationally harmonised list of chemicals and equipment, the creation of an electronic information system to be shared by all jurisdictions and a programme of improved information sharing between border agencies and law enforcement agencies as possible ways to reduce the diversion of chemicals and equipment towards the production of illicit drugs. 

The consultation period closed on 17 June 2016.
