Review of Mutual Recognition Schemes – Research report released on 6 February 2009 from the Productivity Commission

The Mutual Recognition Agreement and the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Arrangement are innovative mechanisms for reducing the costs of regulatory differences among Australian jurisdictions and between Australia and New Zealand.
In this second five yearly review of the schemes, the Commission found that the schemes had brought benefits through increased mobility of labour and merchandise, but that there remained scope to further enhance their operations. Key areas are: bringing greater certainty to the way the schemes operate in relation to occupations; and facilitating interactions between regulators, governments, tribunals and the public.
