Make a submission on the draft regulator performance omnibus bill


The Australian Government consulted publicly on the draft Regulator Performance Omnibus Bill to ensure it is informed by business and community expectations of regulators.

The proposed amendments would make it easier for the GEMS Regulator to administer the legislation and easier for suppliers to comply with its requirements. The amendments, while minor, would support the achievement of the objects of the Act by giving flexibility to help more energy efficient products be available in the Australian market. These amendments would:

  • reduce unnecessary administrative burden for both the GEMS Regulator and suppliers;
  • streamline processes for those regulated by the Act;
  • increase flexibility to reduce regulatory burden for business; and
  • reduce suppliers’ need to seek exemptions from requirements.

More information on the Bill is available on the Regulator Performance Omnibus Bill consultation page
