Regulatory burdens arise from the costs imposed by regulation and enforcement that would otherwise not arise for businesses. Where requirements from regulation create a change in business behaviour and practices, a regulatory burden can be said to exist. Regulations can adversely impact on businesses in various ways. Most fall under the following four categories of cost impacts:

Administrative and operational requirements, such as:
• Reporting, record keeping
• Getting legal advice, training

Requirements on the way goods are produced or services supplied, such as:
• Prescriptions on production methods
• Occupational registration requirements, requiring professionals to use particular techniques

Requirements on the characteristics of what is produced or supplied, such as:
• Being required to provide air bags in all motor vehicles
• Requiring teachers or trainers to cover particular topics

Lost production and marketing opportunities due to prohibitions, such as:
• When certain products or services are banned.

While it is usually necessary that some burden is placed on business for regulation to achieve objectives, where regulation is poorly designed or written, or it is not administered or enforced well, it may impose greater burdens than necessary. In reviewing existing regulation, it is those regulatory burdens which can be considered ‘unnecessary’ that are of primary interest.
