Regulation Impact Statement for Consultation – Department of Agriculture and Water Resources

On 25 August 2017, the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources released for consultation a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) on proposed reforms to agricultural export legislation, along with a consultation draft of the Export Control Bill.

The proposed reforms are intended to make the export legislative framework easier to understand, administer and use, and will help safeguard Australia’s reputation as a reliable, high-quality source of exports for trading partners. 

Details of the consultation process can be found on the Department’s website.  The consultation period closes on 24 October 2017.

The RIS has been certified by the Department and was subject to an early assessment by the OBPR.
