Regulatory Impact Statements
Overview of the RIS System
The purpose of the RIS system is to reduce the regulatory burden in Queensland by requiring agencies to develop regulatory proposals in accordance with regulatory best practice principles and to assist officers working on the development, assessment and improvement of regulation, to produce better regulation.
The RIS system is an important element of the Government’s approach to reducing the regulatory burden, with its key focus being to increase the rigour with which new regulation is made.
