Part X (International Liner Shipping)

The Department is responsible for the regulation of international liner shipping of cargo, particularly as it relates to Part X of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010. These provisions contribute to ensuring that exporters have continued access to frequent and reliable liner cargo shipping services at internationally competitive freight rates.

Regulator Performance Framework

The Australian Government is committed to reducing the cost of unnecessary or inefficient regulation imposed on individuals, business and community organisation.

The Department has undertaken an assessment of achievement against the Regulator Performance Framework indicators for Part X for the reporting period 2019–2021. Please see the following assessment report for Part X.

2020–2021 Regulator Self-Assessment—Part X of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Part X)

Date published:

The Australian Government has committed to reducing the cost of unnecessary or inefficient regulation imposed on individuals, business and community organisations. The Regulator Performance Framework (the Framework) supports Australian Government regulators to measure and improve their performance, particularly in adopting consistent, risk-based approaches to administered regulation. 2021 will be the final year of the Regulator Performance Framework. Measuring regulatory performance will be included in regulators business plans going forward. The Framework consists of six outcomes-based key performance indicators (KPIs) aimed at reducing regulatory burden, communications, risk-based and proportionate approaches, efficient and coordinated monitoring, transparency, and continuous improvement.
