It is the duty of the RA to remain informed of consumer opinions and we appreciate your input.
What is a Public Consultation and why do we do it?
Authorities sometimes use Public Consultation before recommending changes to laws and policies.
Public Consultation is a useful tool in the regulatory process.
- Seek to gather input on large-scale projects affecting the public
- Provide valuable information, evidence and opinions from industry stakeholders and consumers
- Support determinations that impact the future of regulated markets
- Introduce efficiency and transparency to the decision-making process
- Notification – publicise the matter to be consulted on.
- Consultation – submission of opinions, evidence and proposals by interested parties. This is a two-way flow of information and all ex-parte communications are made public.
- Participation – interest groups submit their proposals to be considered in the final decision and/or document.
