ACT Better Regulation Taskforce


ACT Better Regulation Taskforce

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on local business, the ACT Government set up the Better Regulation Taskforce (the Taskforce). The aim of the Taskforce is to make it easier to start up, run and grow a business in the ACT. We want to put in place the best settings for business recovery, longer-term growth and regulation in the ACT. We know the landscape of COVID-19 will continue to evolve, requiring adaptive government responses and fit-for-purpose regulation.

The Taskforce will make starting, running and growing a business easier in the ACT.

The Better Regulation Taskforce Report

The Taskforce has now completed the Discovery Phase. We engaged with multiple businesses to identify how they want to be communicated with, ideas for simplifying interactions with government, what programs and initiatives would best support businesses and how legislation and process could be reviewed and improved.

We are pleased to present the Better Regulation Report which maps out an agenda to make it easier to start, run and grow a business in the ACT by making regulation better and simplifying interactions between business and government.

You can access a full, and a summary version of the report to understand what this will mean for business owners in the ACT.

What’s next?

The Taskforce will build on the ‘How can we help’ approach of ACT Government agencies and regulators and will continue to speak with businesses as the Better Regulation Agenda progresses through 2022 and 2023.

Our next update for the next phase of this work will be in 2023.
