Review of Mutual Recognition Arrangements
On 25 September 2015, the Productivity Commission released its research report on the operation of the Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) and Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Arrangement (TTMRA).
The report assesses the coverage, efficiency and effectiveness of the MRA and TTMRA. It also recommends ways to further improve interjurisdictional movement of goods and skilled workers, and reduce red tape. The Cross Jurisdictional Review Forum is to present to Australian Heads of Government and the New Zealand Prime Minister a Review Report responding to the report's findings in 2016.
