Streamline WA

Making it easier to do business in Western Australia through better regulation.


Streamline WA logo

Streamline WA is a whole of government initiative to make it easier to do business in WA by improving regulation and regulatory practice. Launched on 6 December 2018, Streamline WA is one of the WA Government’s Public Sector Reform initiatives to deliver better services and outcomes for Western Australians.

More effective regulation

Effective regulation supports innovation, investment and protects our community and environment, but ineffective regulation can increase the costs and difficulties of doing business. 

We want to improve the way we develop and apply regulation in WA, to ensure that:

  • Western Australians are confident that risks are well managed
  • Regulatory requirements are clear and easy to understand
  • Our decision making addresses risks and focuses on outcomes
  • We apply regulation consistently and reduce overlap and duplication
  • Government information, applications and processes are available online for maximum efficiency

By making regulation more effective, Streamline WA will encourage investment, make it easier to do business and create more jobs in Western Australia.

How does Streamline WA work?

Streamline WA is led by a Steering Committee, supported by regulatory and economic development government agencies, and operates in collaboration with leaders from industry and community groups.

Business, industry and community members submit their ideas to improve regulation and regulatory practice online via the Streamline WA portal. These submissions are assessed and prioritised against criteria approved by the Streamline WA Steering Committee. Eligible submissions are referred to a lead government agency, which will work collaboratively with government, industry and community stakeholders to explore and progress the proposed reforms.
