Single economic market
Under the Single Economic Market agenda, the New Zealand and Australian Governments are working on efforts to remove regulatory barriers to firms operating in both markets. The aim is to create a more seamless trans-Tasman business environment.
The major work areas for the Single Economic Market were updated in February 2011 and are listed on the Trans-Tasman Outcomes Implementation Group website.
The New Zealand and Australian Governments are working together, via the Trans-Tasman Outcomes Implementation Group (TTOIG) to introduce the following Trans-Tasman processes:
- a single regulatory framework for patent attorneys
- a single trade mark regime
- a single application and examination process for patents
- a single regime for patent attorneys
- a single plant variety right regime
