Research Report 662 Best practice model for developing legislation

Published: | Category: Inclusive access , Research & reports

The aim of this research was to develop a model to guide the development of land transport regulation in the context of New Zealand’s public safety regulatory environment. The research found legislation tends to reflect a particular moment in time. Regulatory failures often share common factors, from which we can learn. New Zealand’s regulators tend to work within constraints that impede their ability to develop flexible regulation for rapidly changing conditions. The report proposes a systems model for regulatory design.

Keywords: developing legislation, regulatory design, regulatory failures, regulatory tools, transport safety
