IPART has undertaken a review of licensing in NSW. The review aimed to assist the NSW Government in achieving its target of $750 million in reduced ‘red tape’ for business and the community by June 2015.
We have now released our Final Report on reforming licensing in NSW. Our Final Report:
- presents the results of our licence surveys of local councils and NSW Government departments and agencies
- considers reforming licensing in NSW with a focus on improving licence design and administration
- identifies and prioritises licences for reform
- recommends specific licence reforms which are estimated to result in between $117 million and $130 million per year of ‘red tape’ savings to business and community
- explains the Licensing Framework and Guide for regulators to use when assessing their existing or proposed licences.
