COAG Decision Regulation Impact Statement – Safe Work Australia

In October 2016, a majority of Work Health and Safety ministers agreed to progress the development of nationally consistent approaches to four areas within existing explosives regulation. These four areas are the definition of explosives, the licensing framework, notification processes, and the explosives authorisation process.

A Decision Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) was prepared by Safe Work Australia and assessed as adequate by the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR).

Safe Work Australia prepared RISs at the consultation and decision-making stages consistent with the COAG best practice regulation requirements.
