Business Impact Assessment



  • Another work focus of business facilitation is to encourage bureaux and departments (B/Ds) to assess the business impact before introducing new regulatory/licensing requirements so as to better take into consideration the operational circumstances and capacity of the trades and understand the costs associated with compliance of the regulatory requirements.

  • Through conducting business impact assessments (BIAs), B/Ds can grasp the concerns and compliance difficulties of the affected trades in complying with the regulatory proposals which will facilitate the B/Ds to enhance or fine-tune their regulatory proposals so as to avoid the introduction of unreasonable regulatory or licensing requirements and reduce the compliance cost without compromising public interests.
