Our consultations are guided by principles set by the Australian Government’s Office of Best Practice Regulation.
These principles recommend that a consultation project:
- be ongoing and begin early in the policy development process;
- aim to capture a diversity of stakeholders;
- allow stakeholders sufficient time to provide considered responses;
- provide stakeholders with sufficient information; and
- have its objectives clearly explained and provide feedback on how responses have been taken into consideration
