Reporting on the Deregulation Agenda

For: 

The Government’s Deregulation Agenda is now administered by the Department of Jobs and Small Business, due to the Administrative Arrangements Order introduced on December 20, 2017.

Previously the Deregulation Agenda (earlier known as the Regulatory Reform Agenda) was administered by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

The Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) which administers Regulatory Impact Analysis requirements remains within the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

The Australian Government reports regularly on implementation of its Deregulation Agenda and administration of its Regulatory Impact Analysis.
