Agencies may assess certain regulatory proposals as suitable for exclusion from further regulatory impact analysis (agency assessed exclusions). Agencies are accountable for ensuring that these proposals clearly meet the criteria for an agency assessed exclusion, listed in Table 1 of the Queensland Government Guide to Better Regulation.
The Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) is required to periodically review and report to government on the performance of the agency assessment model. Agencies must keep a register of the proposals they have self-assessed and be able to provide this information to the OBPR upon request. The agency assessed exclusions portal allows agencies to register their exclusions online – this replaces the need for an agency to separately provide its register on request for auditing by the OBPR.
Agencies should update their registers in the portal by the end of each month.
The user guide provides information on accessing and using the portal. Further resources (including ‘how to’ videos and the upload template) are available in the portal.
