Additional Comments by Coalition Senators

1.1        Coalition Senators make the following additional comments on the interim report.

1.2        The Senate Select Committee on Red Tape's motivation in addressing the considerable regulatory burden of occupational licensing has identified issues restricting the market, and potentially increasing consumer costs.

1.3        These issues include regulatory requirements, duplication of regulations, excessive red tape in individual compliance, with associated flow on costs to business and consumers.

1.4        The committee also found issues with multiple and needlessly complex regulations within individual jurisdictions and sectors further restricting the national outlook.

1.5        Noting that this is an interim report, Coalition Senators will provide additional comments on these issues once the final report has been tabled.
