Commonwealth Regulatory Burden Measure

 

Business Cost Calculator superseded

The Business Cost Calculator has been superseded by the Regulatory Burden Measure: ( https://rbm.obpr.gov.au/ ).

Under the Australian Government Guide to Regulation, all regulatory costs, whether arising from new regulations or changes to existing regulation, and associated offsetting regulatory savings must be quantified using the Regulatory Burden Measure, consistent with the Regulatory Burden Measurement framework.

Agencies are required to use the Regulatory Burden Measure to quantify costs and cost offsets, unless an alternative is agreed with the Office of Best Practice Regulation. Any alternative must be consistent with the Regulatory Burden Measurement framework.

Please note: you should use the Regulatory Burden Measure from now on instead of the Business Cost Calculator, unless you are continuing work on an existing Business Cost Calculator costing.

The old Business Cost Calculator remains available to provide support for Australian Government departments and agencies that need access to regulatory costings created using the Business Cost Calculator: ( https://old-bcc.obpr.gov.au )
