Upcoming consultations

We want to communicate effectively with our stakeholders. You’ve told us that you need more information about the timing of our consultations, so we’re fine-tuning our activities to make it easier for you to engage with us. This will lead to more effective consultation on the issues that are important to you.

While every consultation is unique, we will aim to:

  • provide information about our public consultation processes and practical guidance on the different ways to make a submission
  • allow reasonable time frames to make a submission—consultations are generally open for four to six weeks
  • explain the policy or regulatory change
  • prepare a regulation impact statement if there is a significant effect on business
  • acknowledge receipt of submissions
  • post copies or a summary of submissions online, as appropriate
  • respond to submissions online, by email or by phone, as appropriate and where a claim to confidentiality is not sought
  • outline information about decision-making processes and outcomes, where appropriate.
