Regulation Impact Statement – The Treasury

On 12 October 2016, the Treasurer introduced the Register of Foreign Ownership of Agricultural Land Amendment (Water) Bill 2016. The bill would establish a Register of Foreign Ownership of Water Entitlements.

A Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) was prepared and certified by the Treasury under the Australian Government’s best practice regulation requirements. The Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) assessed the RIS as compliant and consistent with best practice.

The RIS estimates the measure will increase regulatory costs by $0.1 million per year. The OBPR agreed to the estimate.
