The Australian Government has asked the Productivity Commission to assess the economic impact of reforms to transport regulation agreed to by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in 2008-09.

Those reforms relate to heavy vehicle safety and productivity, rail safety and maritime safety.  The Government has also asked the Commission to recommend further reforms towards a more integrated national market for transport services.

The Commission has released an issues paper to guide people in preparing a submission.  It sets out some of the issues and questions the Commission has identified as relevant at this early stage of the inquiry.  Participants should provide evidence to support their views, including data and specific examples where possible.

Initial submissions are due by Friday 28 June 2019.
