Regulatory review

The Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR) administers the Queensland Government’s regulatory review requirements, which aim to ensure regulation is necessary, well-designed and fit-for-purpose.

The OBPR delivers training and guidance, provides formal advice on the quality of regulatory review, and oversees the regulator performance framework.
