Publications and Notices

On this page are resources and publications that form part of the regulatory framework of the Registered Organisations Commission. This page also includes a list and a copy of the notices published in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette or a newspaper by the Registered Organisations Commissioner. The Registered Organisations Commission commenced on 1 May 2017.


The Regulator Performance Framework

The Regulator Performance Framework (RPF) is an important part of the Government’s commitment to reducing the cost of unnecessary or inefficient regulation. The RPF encourages regulators to undertake functions and achieve objectives with the minimum impact on regulated entities by, among other things, measuring and publicly reporting performance. Six Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were developed by the Government in 2014, against which regulators measure their performance.

The Registered Organisations Commission is required to report against the KPIs for the year 2017-18. The following performance metrics have been developed to assess our performance against the KPIs. Our results will be published on our website before January 2019.

The Six Key Performance Indicators and the measures are able to be downloaded here.
