Commissioner for Productivity

Better regulation in NSW

The Commissioner is leading the redesign of a regulatory policy framework to enhance productivity. Regulation plays an important role in keeping our economy moving. Effective regulation supports productivity growth, investment and innovation, but poor regulation is frustrating and cumbersome. It slows economic growth and increases the cost of doing business.

The NSW Government is committed to continuous improvement of its regulatory policy framework to support and enhance opportunities for improved productivity.

The new regulatory policy framework will build upon the Government’s current better regulation policies and initiatives, and draw upon the recommendations of the Independent Review of the NSW Regulatory Policy framework, led by the Hon Nick Greiner AC.
