Regulation Committee

The Regulation Committee was first established on a trial basis on 23 November 2017  in the 56th Parliament. The Committee was reappointed in the 57th Parliament on 8 May 2019 and in the 58th Parliament on 10 May 2023.


The committee was established to inquire into and report on:


  • any instruments of a legislative nature regardless of its form, including the policy or substantive content of the instrument,  


  • draft delegated legislation, and  


  • trends or issues in relation to delegated legislation.


The resolution establishing the Committee in the 58th Parliament was amended on 19 October 2023 by the House. This amendment expanded the scrutiny functions of the Committee regarding statutory instruments. More information about this additional function can be found here.
