The Regulator Performance Framework

The Regulator Performance Framework (RPF) is an important part of the Government’s commitment to reducing the cost of unnecessary or inefficient regulation. The RPF encourages regulators to undertake functions and achieve objectives with the minimum impact on regulated entities by, among other things, measuring and publicly reporting performance. Six Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were developed by the Government in 2014, against which regulators measure their performance.

The ROC is required to report against the KPIs commencing from the year 201718. The following performance metrics have been developed to assess our performance against the KPIs. Our results will be published on our website.
