Publication abstract:

The Australian Government Guide to Regulatory Impact Analysis provides an overview of how to approach the task of making policy whenever regulation may be considered as a policy option. The principles in the Guide to Regulatory Impact Analysis are also useful for policy makers more generally.

The Guide to Regulatory Impact Analysis provides high-level principles for policy makers and an outline of the process for developing a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS). It is intended for policy officers and anyone else involved in analysing, developing or implementing policy where regulation may be under consideration.

This User Guide is designed to be read alongside the Guide to Regulatory Impact Analysis. It provides detail on the specifics of developing your RIS, helpful step-by-step advice and having it assessed by the Office of Best Practice Regulation.
