The Queensland Department of Treasury and Trade asked the QCA to undertake a review of the national Decision Regulation Impact Statements (RISs) prepared for the introduction of the National Occupational Licensing System (NOLS).
We were asked to review the RISs to determine whether the NOLS reform would be of net economic benefit to Queensland. We were also asked to advise on the financial impact on the Queensland Government and impacts on stakeholders within relevant industries, including those that operate solely in Queensland.
The report will include a comprehensive assessment of the impact the proposed reforms have on Queensland including whether the reforms provide a net benefit to the state.
Public involvement is an important part of our decision-making process, and consultation, with all relevant government agencies and other key stakeholders, will form a large part of this project.
