Journal article

Emphasising more effective law rather than more law, this paper provides a perspective from within government that argues for a better appreciation of what is required to ensure that regulation is effective in a New Zealand context.

Using building controls, financial markets regulation and occupational health and safety as examples, this paper presents an analysis of the changes to the regulatory landscape, and in particular the role of regulators as a particular facet of regulatory design.

Gaye Searancke, Peter Mumford, Karl Simpson and Mark Steel are all members of the Labour and Commercial Environment Group in the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
