The results are in: our performance as a regulator

10 January 2018

We have a commitment to good regulatory practice, so each year we self-assess our performance as a regulator. We’re doing better every year. You can now read our self-assessment for the last financial year, 2016-17.

Part of our business is to regulate the safety and security of radiation sources, facilities and nuclear installations, owned or operated by Commonwealth entities. So it’s important we also conduct a yearly review of how we are doing as a regulator.
This was the second formal assessment of ARPANSA against an agreed, common set of performance measures outlined in the Government Regulator Performance Framework.
In the self-assessment, we performed ‘very good’ for all performance indicators, apart from one ‘good’ rating. These ratings were an improvement on the 2015-16 assessment.
Highlights included:
• Good communication with the entities we assess
• Risks are well managed
• We are open and transparent in our dealings
• We contribute to the continuous improvement of regulator frameworks.
