Today is the South Australian Government’s inaugural Simplify Day, a day set aside in Parliament with the aim of improving the State’s regulatory environment to support business and industry, and removing "outdated and redundant" legislation.
A bill introduced into State parliament today repeals eleven obsolete Acts and amends 33 existing Acts and regulations. The Government says that a number of other initiatives will be the subject of ongoing work and partnership between the community and Government, with some to be considered as part of Simplify Day 2017.
According to the Government, “[k]ey Simplify Day reforms include enabling the issue of electronic licences and permits, abolishing heavy vehicle registration labels, and reducing the cost of licensing of partnerships involved in building work contractors, plumbers, gas fitters and electricians."
This initiative is coordinated by Treasury and Finance. They can be contacted at: SimplerReg@sa.gov.au or by telephone on 8226 7077.
