Regulator performance frameworks

​The Australian Government’s Regulator performance framework was released in October 2014. The framework aims to improve the performance of regulators by establishing a means for Commonwealth regulators to evaluate, in partnership with key stakeholder groups, overall regulatory performance.

For our department, the framework applies to the following organisational functions:

  • the delivery of biosecurity functions
  • the control of exports, including certification
  • the regulation of importation of timber products and processing of raw logs to combat illegal logging
  • the monitoring of imported food
  • the collection of levies for research, development and marketing
  • the implementation of the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Scheme.

The framework requires us to annually undertake a self-assessment of our performance against six outcomes-based key performance indicators (KPIs) that address regulatory burden, communications, risk-based and proportionate approaches, efficient and coordinated monitoring, transparency, and continuous improvement.

Evidence metrics

To support our self-assessment against the KPI’s we use evidence metrics to measure our performance. The metrics for our most recent report (2016-17) are at Regulator Performance Framework 2016-17.

Annual Self-Assessments

We have completed annual RPF self assessments for the 2016-17 and 2015-16 reporting periods, available for download.​
