Regulatory change measurement: Environment Protection (Industrial Waste Resource) Regulations 2009

As part of the Victorian Government’s Reducing the Regulatory Burden initiative, the administrative and substantive compliance costs and the delay costs associated with the introduction of the Environment Protection (Industrial Waste Resource) Regulations 2009 were measured using the ‘regulatory change measurement’ method. The administrative savings consist mostly of a reduction in reporting requirements via the removal of annual returns and a reduction in the completion requirements for waste transport certificates. The amendments to the classification system of the waste categories led to a reduction in PIW levels for some businesses, as their waste streams were no longer considered hazardous. As a result, the number of waste transport certificates requiring completion has decreased. In addition, the introduction of the secondary beneficial reuse (SBR) process has significantly contributed to savings in substantive compliance costs.
