EnergyAustralia chairman Graham Bradley has welcomed the federal government’s decision to undertake a review of red tape. However, he notes that the regulatory burden on businesses has increased over the last 15 years, despite efforts to address the problem. Bradley has identified the duplication of approval processes between state and federal governments as one of the key contributors to project cost blowouts. Minerals Council of Australia CEO Tania Constable agrees that duplication is a problem, and she stresses the need for better regulation rather than simply more regulation.
