Second interim report proposes a simpler model for financial services legislation
Interim Report B contains proposals for an alternative legislative model that aims to be more coherent and principled, to accommodate change, and to make the law easier to navigate. The ALRC’s proposed legislative model combines existing legislative tools with a more principled approach to legislative design. The ALRC anticipates the reform ideas in Interim Report B would offer considerable benefits to consumers, industry, and regulated entities with a shorter, clearer, and more navigable legal framework that should significantly reduce compliance costs.

Interim Report B contains 6 recommendations, 16 proposals, and 2 questions.
The ALRC is seeking submissions from the public in response to the proposals and questions by 30 November 2022. Submissions and further consultations will help the ALRC to formulate its ultimate recommendations at the conclusion of the Inquiry.

Pressed for time?
Take a few minutes to read Dr William Isdale & Christopher Ash’s article on the Interim Report B:
“If Australia’s corporations and financial services statutes were likened to a house, it would be a large and disordered one. A house in which new annexes have been added with little thought to overall design, and in which objects are scattered and hidden, with little regard to how they may be found in the future. In short, a house that is thoroughly disordered. A house that needs re-design and serious tidying.”
