Discussion Paper - Multiple Classification Policy
The paper discussed proposals to amend the Board’s multiple classification policy. The multiple classification policy set out criteria that the Board used to determine whether a firm that operated several businesses would be charged one assessment rate or different assessment rates.
The amendments would clarify the current policy, make the multiple classification review process more transparent, and create opportunities for more firms to qualify for multiple classification. In addition, the amendments would remove the special hazard operations policy under which the Board required designated high-risk activities to be classified separately.
