An important and emerging role for the VSBC is to monitor the impact of market trends, legislation and government policies on small business (see the VSBC’s three-year strategy).

The goals of the Monitoring function are to:

  • Review the potential impact of legislation and policy (in terms of its potential to adversely affect small business)
  • Report on market practices and emerging issues
  • Contribute to business reviews

The commencement of the Victorian Small Business Commission on  1 July 2017 introduced further monitoring functions for the VSBC to:

  • review proposed legislation in terms of its potential to adversely affect small business
  • advise or comment on the development of legislation and regulatory policy relating to small business and related matters.

The VSBC monitors issues of importance to the small business sector, contributes to the national agenda through regular Commissioner meetings and participates in relevant sector reviews.
