RIA TRAINING FOR TOWN CLERKS AND COUNCIL SECRETARIES

The Business Regulatory Review Agency (BRRA) successfully completed its Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) sensitisation workshop for Town Clerks and Council Secretaries from Muchinga, Eastern and Central Provinces on 3rd December, 2020.
Speaking during the end of the three day workshop, BRRA Director and Chief Executive Officer Sharon Sichilongo said the Agency wanted Town Clerks and Council Secretaries to be empowered with knowledge on how to conduct a RIA so that they could provide effective leadership and oversight with regards to formulation of regulatory frameworks that affect business.
Mrs Sichilongo added that BRRA had accelerated efforts in conducting RIA sensitisation and training for officers responsible for policy and regulatory matters in local authorities. So far, one hundred and fourteen (114) officers from local authorities across the country have been sensitised about the Business Regulatory Act No.3 of 2014 and have received RIA Training.
The Agency sensitised over thirty (30) Town Clerks and Council Secretaries from Muchinga, Eastern and Central Provinces during the RIA training workshop. 
Mrs Sichilongo thanked all the Town Clerks and Council Secretaries for attending the RIA sensitisation workshop and urged them to call on the Agency whenever they faced a challenge in undertaking RIAs.
