Remaking of Sunsetting Instrument without Significant Amendments – Department of Communications and the Arts

On 6 December 2018, the Governor-General made the Telecommunications (Arbitration) Regulations 2018. The regulations replace the Telecommunications (Arbitration) Regulations 1997 and provide rules and procedures for the arbitration of disputes by the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) about access to certain services under the Telecommunications Act 1997 and the Telecommunications (Consumer Protection and Service Standards) Act 1999.

Consistent with the Government’s best practice regulation requirements for sunsetting instruments, the Department of Communications and the Arts has, after consultation with industry, assessed this instrument as operating effectively and efficiently. Therefore, a Regulation Impact Statement is not required for remaking the instrument without significant amendments.
