Notice of Review

The South Australian Government has asked the Commission to undertake a review into the effect of application of regulations on the tourism industry. The Commission will “…focus on short to medium term benefits to the state that can be realised through changes in regulator practices, processes and capability, the use of technology as well as culture and relationships between proponents and regulators.”

The Terms of Reference for this review require the Commission to “…consult with key industry organisations, including organisations representing regional South Australian tourism interests, business operators, the SATC, other relevant public sector agencies and regulators, and other key stakeholders.

The Commission will shortly release an Issues Paper that sets out the Commission’s initial understanding of the matters to be addressed. This paper will seek input from interested parties, both on the matters identified as well as any other relevant issues.

The Premier has directed the Commission to issue a draft report outlining recommendations for consultative purposes and that the final report be made available no later than 1 October 2021.
