In October 2014, the Commission was asked to examine and report on how regulation might stop organised crime from infiltrating occupations and industries. Regulatory regimes are laws, regulations, policies and instruments that govern the entry into and conduct within an industry. They include licensing, registration requirements and fit-and-proper-person tests.
The VLRC reviewed various lawful occupations and industries in Victoria and elsewhere. Our report, tabled in Parliament on 25 May 2016, concluded that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all approach’ to industry regulation and regulatory responses to infiltration by organised crime must be considered on an industry-to-industry basis.
