Regulatory update #188
Regulatory guidelines now available
Following the recent public consultation the draft regulatory guidelines have now been finalised. The revised guidelines are also available from our homepage and will come into place from 1 July 2014.
A range of changes have been made following the consultation, relating to both the content in the guidelines and the way it can be found and navigated. An overview of the changes is available on our website and we thank everyone who took the time to make submissions and provide us with feedback.
The guidelines have been designed to make the information you need easier to find, and we will continue to improve them. If you have any feedback, questions or concerns at any time, please let us know.
For more information about the guidelines and on getting ready for the changes from 1 July 2014—including training, frequently asked question and new application and payment tools, please visit our website.
