REGULATION IMPACT STATEMENT CERTIFICATION AUTHORITY DELEGATED
Australian Communications and Media Authority
On 17 February 2020, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) wrote to the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR), advising the authority to certify Regulation Impact Statements (RISs) will be delegated to General Manager-level (SES Band 2) and above officers in the ACMA.
This is consistent with changes to improve flexibility in the RIS process by allowing agencies to delegate the certification authority to any Senior Executive Service (SES) level officers.
To ensure transparency, a decision to depart from the default RIS certification authority (Secretary, Deputy Secretary, or Chief Executive) is published on the OBPR website.
