Publication abstract:

Where a policy proposal has a direct bearing on trade performance, a trade impact assessment (TIA) should be incorporated into your Regulation Impact Statement to give the decision maker a summary of the impact of regulatory options and the overall impact on Australia’s international trade.

This guidance note describes the trigger for the preparation of a TIA, sets out what should be examined in a TIA, and provides a hypothetical example.
