• Regulatory Reform Team

    The Regulatory Reform team works to raise living standards in Western Australia by improving the outcomes regulatory and other economic reforms can deliver to the community. In particular, it supports the Government in reforming regulation and reducing barriers to entrepreneurial activity to support employment, encourage investment and diversify the economy. 

    The Regulatory Reform team works with government agencies to identify deregulation and microeconomic reform opportunities, and help co-ordinate reform efforts across government. As part of our customer service offering, the Regulatory Reform team:  

    • Works with government agencies when they consider reform proposals put forward by government, private review bodies or public forums
    • Assists government agencies in developing and implementing their own economic or other regulatory reforms
    • Advises government agencies on State and National competition policy and how to make the most of competitive incentives
    • Investigates concerns business may have if government bodies compete unfairly in the market, via a Competitive Neutrality Complaints mechanism

    This is in addition to leading reforms in some areas. For example, the Regulatory Reform team is currently undertaking a Review of the Western Australia Rail Access Regime and is also in the process of developing regulations for the Economic Regulation Authority to recover costs associated with its administration of the Rail Access Regime.
