Abstract:

The Minister for Revenue and Assistant Treasurer has released the paper Streamlining Prudential Regulation: Response to 'Rethinking Regulation' seeking the views of interested parties on proposals in response to recommendations relating to prudential regulation in the report of the Taskforce on Reducing Regulatory Burdens on Business — Rethinking Regulation, as well as outstanding recommendations of the HIH Royal Commission relating to removing ministerial consent and reviewing the application of merits review to Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) decisions.

The Government is committed to ensuring that Australians are protected by a strong and effective prudential framework without placing unnecessary regulatory burdens on business. In addition to implementing the recommendations of the various reports, the Government has identified further areas where it considers that the prudential regulation framework can be simplified and its flexibility and effectiveness improved.
