Small Business Regulation Review Program
Cutting red tape and reducing regulatory burden for small business is a priority for the Victorian Government. To help achieve this, the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) has delivered the Small Business Regulation Review (SBRR).
The SBRR program delivered a series of reviews focussed on regulatory issues impacting small businesses in the Retail, Visitor Economy and Construction sectors. Reviews looked through the eyes of small businesses at the regulations and processes they need to deal with to start and grow a business and find practical reforms to save businesses time and money.
Once fully implemented the three SBRR sector reviews are estimated to deliver between $317 million and $474 million per annum in direct benefits to small businesses.
- The SBRR Retail Action Statement (PDF 887.6 KB) was released in June 2018. Reforms include the flagship Better Approvals Project delivered across Victorian councils from 2018 to early 2021.
- The SBRR Visitor Economy Action Statement (PDF 1038.56 KB) was released in June 2018.
- The SBRR Construction Action Statement (PDF 5933.84 KB) was released in August 2019. The Small Business Regulatory Engagement Charter for Regulators (PDF 730.32 KB), flagship reform of the Construction review, was released in October 2020.
