Remaking of Sunsetting Instrument without Significant Amendments
NATIONAL HEALTH (PHARMACEUTICAL BENEFITS) REGULATIONS 1960
The National Health (Pharmaceutical Benefits) Regulations 2017 (F2017L00313) came into effect on 1 April 2017. The Regulations replace the National Health (Pharmaceutical Benefits) Regulations 1960 which were due to sunset on that date. The Regulations are essential to the ongoing administration and delivery of the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and were remade without significant amendment.
Consistent with the Australian Government’s best practice regulation requirements for sunsetting instruments, the Department of Health has assessed that the regulations are operating effectively and efficiently. Therefore, under the Government’s best practice requirements, a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) is not required for remaking this Regulation.
