The official government policy process for developing a RIS. It includes questions you’ll need to answer if you have to complete a RIS (Regulatory Impact Statement).
All Cabinet submissions require a RIS. If a decision is not going to Cabinet, a RIS is still required where the policy proposal is likely to have a measurable impact on business, community organisations or individuals. This includes new regulations, amendments to existing regulations and, in some cases, sunsetted regulations being remade.
Even in situations where a RIS may not be required, a RIS is good practice where an agency or regulator is responsible for issuing rules or guidance material for businesses, community organisations or individuals.
