Ministerial challenge – Revitalise #aviation by cutting red-tape

Is there another way?

Not long after Trump became US President, he made an instruction to the FAA for every new regulation, to remove two regulations.

On 25th April 2015, this publication said:

Red Tape reduction by CASA

What an amazing article by CASA [in full below]

We have spoken [the aviation industry], using an independent umpire in the David Forsyth and the ASRR.

CASA need to listen to the Aviation Industry and act now, without attempts to divert the umpire’s decision.

The industry doesn’t need to give CASA further time.

The answer is quite simple, dump all the “junk regulations” that you [CASA] have made up, such as part 61, part 141 [and on] which will not and do not work.

No matter what you do to “…fix it…”, the industry complaints will continue.

There is a perfectly good set of workable regulations either across the ditch [in New Zealand] or further afield with the US-FAR’s. This usage was the preferred option in the ASRR review by industry.

Would save a lot of angst and time and cost.

So far, no change in the past two and a half years

What of the situation in the US??

Today the Institute of Public Affairs released a new research report, Reducing Red Tape in Australia: ‘One in, Two Out’ Rule. The research found Australia would have 107,885 fewer pages of regulation and 6,990 fewer rules today if a one-in-two-out rule was implemented when the Coalition formed Government in September 2013.

This comes after United States President Donald Trump signed an executive order in January requiring every agency that introduces a new regulation to find two existing regulations to cut.

“Red tape is one of the primary factors holding back prosperity in Australia. A structured approach to reducing red tape is needed and a one-in-two-out approach is the best way to do this,” said Daniel Wild, research fellow with the free market think tank, the Institute of Public Affairs.

“Countries around the world have dedicated regulatory reform programs. But it is noticeably absent in Australia. This makes us less competitive and hinders our ability to attract international investment.”

“My main concern is the cumulative effect regulation has on our economy. It is just far too easy for government agencies to implement new rules without thinking about how this adds to the total stock of regulation. We need to a process that forces government agencies to think twice before they regulation.”

“Research by the Institute of Public Affairs found red tape costs Australian individuals, families and businesses $176 billion in forgone economic output each year. A dedicated and revitalised red-tape reduction agenda is needed to reduce this imposition on our economy.”
“Reducing red tape will reduce barriers to business entry, lower prices for consumers, increase competition and improve economic growth. This is extra growth will result in the Federal Government collecting more revenue, which will improve the Budget position,” said Mr Wild.
