Regulation Impact Statement – Department of Employment

On 13 October 2016 the Government introduced the Seafarers and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2016, Seafarers Safety and Compensation Levies Bill 2016 and the Seafarers Safety and Compensation Levies Collection Bill 2016.

The Bills would clarify the coverage of the Seacare scheme, update the scheme’s work health and safety and workers’ compensation arrangements and provide more efficient and effective governance of the scheme.

A Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) was prepared and certified by the Department of Employment and has been assessed as compliant and best practice by the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR).

The RIS estimates that the preferred option will have an annual average regulatory cost of $0.095 million per year, and identifies regulatory offsets.
