All submissions are assessed and prioritised using criteria approved by the Streamline WA Steering Committee.

To meet the assessment criteria, submissions must propose regulatory reform that:

  • will make it easier to do business in WA
  • can be applied by the Western Australian government
  • are of a scale and nature that can’t be dealt with by a single government agency
  • is not already being addressed or developed by a government agency
  • offers benefits that outweigh the costs of implementation.

Eligible submissions are then prioritised and referred to a government agency which will work collaboratively with government, industry and community to explore and progress the proposed reforms.

Reform proposals that are not progressed under Streamline WA may be referred to a government agency for consideration and action.
