Post-implementation reviews Guidance Note
Australian Government agencies must undertake a post-implementation review (PIR) for all regulatory changes that have major impacts on the economy. PIRs must also be prepared when regulation has been introduced, removed, or significantly changed without a regulation impact statement (RIS). This may be because an adequate RIS was not prepared for the final decision, or because the Prime Minister granted an exemption from the RIS requirements. This guidance note explains the purpose, process and content requirements for a PIR.
