IPA regulatory costing - final report

To fulfil its requirements, IP Australia is required to report to the Department of Industry by the end of July outlining the regulatory costs of Acts, Regulations and supporting guidelines it's responsible for administering.


The Australian Government has committed to reduce the regulatory burden for individuals, businesses and community organisations by at least $1 billion per year. All Government department portfolios have been asked to complete an audit of their existing regulations, including measuring the compliance cost of the regulations on businesses and individuals.
