Queensland ups the ante against red tape
The Queensland Government has announced it has received a ‘framework for reducing red tape’ following the release of the Office of Best Practice regulation’s (OBPR) Final Report.
State Assistant Minister for Finance, Administration and Regulatory Reform Deb Frecklington said the OBPR’s Final Report provided a structure for the Newman Government to go about achieving its goal of reducing red tape and regulation by 20 per cent.
“In keeping with our election commitment, the Office of Best Practice Regulation was set up within the Queensland Competition Authority to drive regulatory reform and help restore transparency and accountability,” Ms Frecklington said.
The OBPR Final Report identifies a range of priority areas, including 10 fast-track reforms and eight medium-term priorities.
The State Government will consider the OBPR’s Final Report before handing down its final response to its 50 recommendations.
