A regulatory impact statement (RIS) provides a high-level summary of key information and analysis decision-makers need to know in order to make informed decisions where regulation may result. A RIS details the problem being addressed, the options and their associated costs and benefits, the consultation undertaken, and the proposed arrangements for implementation and review.
More information about RISs and regulatory impact analysis can be found here.
Although it is primarily a tool to assist decision-makers, the RIS is also an important document for those who want to understand how the government has reached its conclusion as to whether to regulate and which option is best.
To help ensure that the regulatory process is open and transparent, RISs must be published. MAF Biosecurity Zealand RISs can be found below. If you believe a RIS is missing, please contact Ministry for Primary Industries.
