 Remaking of sunsetting instrument without significant amendments - Department of Communications and the Arts

The Governor General remade the Australian Postal Corporation (Performance Standards) Regulations 1998, which were scheduled to sunset on 1 April 2019, without significant amendments. The instrument was replaced by the Australian Postal Corporation (Performance Standards) Regulations 2019 on 13 February 2019.

The regulations set requirements on Australia Post in relation to speed, frequency and accuracy of letter delivery, the number and locations of retail outlets and the number of street posting boxes. 

Consistent with the Australian Government’s best practice regulation requirements for sunsetting instruments, the Department has assessed that the regulation is operating effectively and efficiently. Therefore, under the Government’s best practice requirements, a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) is not required for remaking this Regulation.
