Regulator Performance Framework

Background

The Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission (the Commission) is established under the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (SRC Act). It is a statutory body that carries out regulatory functions in relation to Comcare and other authorities that determine workers' compensation claims under the SRC Act.

As the regulator of self-insured licensees under the SRC Act, the Commission is required to implement the Government’s Regulator Performance Framework (the Framework). The Framework encourages regulators to minimise their impact on those they regulate while still delivering the regulatory functions they are required to perform.

Measuring performance

The Framework provides regulators with the following standard set of key performance indicators to implement.

KPIDescription
KPI 1Regulators do not unnecessarily impede the efficient operation of the regulated entities
KPI 2Communication with regulated entities is clear, targeted and effective
KPI 3Actions undertaken by regulators are proportionate to the regulatory risk being managed
KPI 4Compliance and monitoring approaches are streamlined and coordinated
KPI 5Regulators are open and transparent in their dealings with regulated entities
KPI 6Regulators actively contribute to the continuous improvement of regulatory frameworks

2015-16 self-assessment

In 2015–16, the Commission completed its first self-assessment against its endorsed key performance indicators.  The Commission’s Regulatory Performance Framework 2015-16 was approved by the Minister in December 2016 and is now available.
