In March 2012, mpconsulting was engaged by the Department of Health and Ageing to undertake a review of the ongoing efficiency and effectiveness of the regulatory framework for hearing services. The purpose of the review was to examine the complex framework of regulation that currently governs the hearing services program and make recommendations for policy options for streamlining the program.

The review is also intended to advance the Department’s broader objective, which is to ensure that the hearing services program provides value for money for government, and that regulation is commensurate with risk.
