Streamline WA fact sheet

Fact sheet:
An overview of the Streamline WA initiative

What is Streamline WA?

Streamline WA is a whole of government initiative to make it easier to do business in Western Australia through better regulation and regulatory practice. 

The Government launched Streamline WA on 6 December 2018 to encourage more investment and create more jobs in Western Australia by developing better ways of creating and applying regulation and improving how Government interacts with business, industry and the community. 

Streamline WA is part of the Government’s Roadmap to Reform commitment to drive reform and change across the public sector to deliver real outcomes for Western Australians.  

Why do we need Streamline WA?

The Government’s Service Priority Review 2017 found that economic, environmental and social opportunities could be maximised by developing and implementing regulation and regulatory practices that are risk-based and outcomes-focused.  
Streamline WA will consider all aspects of regulation, including legislation and administration, and standardise how it is applied across government.  

How will Streamline WA work?

Streamline WA will deliver better outcomes for business, industry and community by focussing on reforms that reduce the barriers, costs and complexities of doing business in Western Australia. 

The Streamline WA web portal will provide a gateway for the public to refer regulatory issues and share ideas on how the Government can improve and simplify the regulatory process.  Streamline WA will assess these issues and ideas, and prioritise the implementation of reforms that make it easier for business, industry and community to interact with the government. 

Streamline WA is led by a Steering Committee, supported by regulatory and economic development government agencies, in operating in collaboration with leaders from industry and community groups. The initiative is implemented by the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety and Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, with support from the Department of Treasury.
