As part of its functions the Commission conducts a research program that is developed in consultation with the Premier. The Commission’s research work is progressed when its other commitments, particularly inquiries, permit. The focus of the research is on areas relevant to facilitating productivity growth, unlocking new economic opportunities, supporting job creation and removing existing regulatory barriers.

Research commissioned as part of an inquiry is published as part of that inquiry.

Research done as part of the Commission’s research program will generally be published as a Research Discussion Paper.
