Publication abstract:

When preparing a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS), Australian Government agencies must consider a range of viable policy options. The number of options included in the analysis should take into account the magnitude of the policy problem being considered.

The purpose of this guidance note is to help agencies to understand when consideration of fewer than three options may be appropriate in a RIS.
