Submission | The Effect of Red Tape on Occupational Licensing | May 2018
Submission to the Senate Select Committee on Red Tape May 2018
The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the Senate Select Committee on Red Tape on the effect of red tape on occupational licensing.
The Australian Chamber has maintained a strong interest in occupational licensing and various reforms in this area over the years. With over 70 associations and chambers as part of our network, our members cover most areas of occupational licensing including in the important licensed areas of plumbing, electrical and construction.
This submission sets out the case in support of reducing red tape and improving occupational licensing regulations to benefit the economy, employment outcomes and overall conditions of doing business in Australia, but in a way that does not reduce licensing to the lowest common denominator.
