Red tape reduction — ideas wanted
The NSW Government is currently exploring ways to remove unnecessary regulatory burdens and reduce administrative costs on NSW businesses.
Whilst it is often necessary for governments to impose regulatory requirements to protect the community from potential harm, create a level playing field in the market and provide consumers with rights and remedies when purchasing goods and services, the cost of complying with regulatory and administrative requirements can be significant.
The costs and time taken to comply with unnecessary and overly burdensome regulation stifles the growth of NSW businesses, and growing businesses creates more jobs and strengthens the NSW economy.
SPASA is encouraging members to provide feedback on processes, paperwork and compliance that — in their mind — contribute to unnecessary red tape.
Below are some possible areas:
- Council, certification and surveying (DA/CDC paperwork, process, etc)
- Building product safety (testing, compliance, etc)
- Public swimming pools
- Workplace health and safety
- Dangerous goods
- E1 — pool and spa barrier certification
- Home Building Compensation Fund
- Consumer protection (Australian Consumer Law)
