Australian Grands Prix (Formula One) Regulations 2016

Notice of preparation of a Regulatory Impact Statement

A Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) has been prepared in relation to the proposed Australian Grands Prix (Formula One) Regulations 2016.

The proposed regulations, to be made under the Australian Grand Prix Act 1994, will replace the Australian Grand Prix (Formula One) Regulations 2006, which will expire on 24 October 2016.

The proposed regulations:

  • regulate the conduct of persons in the declared area and designated access areas during the race period for the Australian Formula One Grand Prix event (the event)
  • facilitate and ensure an appropriate degree of safety of persons in the declared and designated access areas during works for the event; and
  • facilitate the operational arrangements for the event.

The RIS assesses the costs and benefits of the proposed regulations and possible alternatives. The preferred option is to make the proposed regulations on the basis that any burdens imposed by the regulations do not outweigh the benefits provided, in relation to safe and orderly construction and dismantlement of event infrastructure, commercial certainty and patron safety.
