Seven government regulatory areas, which operate under legislation with some features in common with chain of responsibility legislation, were reviewed to identify work undertaken to define workforce roles, competencies and/or capabilities and the related training frameworks that support development of the competencies. The features of each were examined to identify commonalities and differences, and their applicability to road transport compliance in the context of chain of responsibility legislation. The areas reviewed were rail safety regulation, workplace inspection, aviation safety regulation, Police, Australian taxation compliance, State revenue administration and social security compliance. A common theme in all the regulatory areas reviewed was the use of functional or role analysis to identify job requirements for compliance, inspection and investigation staff under the respective legislation with outcomes mapped to national regulatory competencies in the Public Sector Training Package or the Public Safety Training Package. The research revealed that the processes used to identify the competencies required by staff in other regulatory areas were applicable to road transport regulators with similar outcomes expected. That is, that many of the competencies required to implement chain of responsibility legislation were in existence and currently being used by other agencies, but that there would be some gaps where road transport specific competencies may need to be developed, or existing competencies modified to suit.
