New productivity commission study into regulatory reform

26 May 2011

Senator Sherry has announced a new Productivity Commission study of opportunities for regulatory reform.

The FCA will take this opportunity to raise the risk of ‘over-regulation’, especially in areas such as disclosure. If disclosure becomes too onerous and unwieldy, its effectiveness is undermined - this is a trend which is being felt in franchising.

Disclosure needs to help potential franchisees and it is counterproductive if the sheer weight of it , or its complexity, discourages new entrants from reading it. FCA will advise Government that future regulatory reform should be aimed at making a positive contribution to productivity growth, rather than potentially hindering it with complexity.

Please give us your thoughts at info@franchise.org.au and we will see to it these views are vigorously put to the Productivity Commission.
