SBRRB ANNOUNCES THE REGULATORY REVIEW CARD

Small Business Regulatory Review Board News Release October 12, 2016

HONOLULU—The Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism’s (DBEDT) Small Business Regulatory Review Board (SBRRB) announces the newly created “Regulatory Review Card.”

“The Regulatory Review Card acts as a communication tool for the SBRRB to assist business owners when they need assistance with an Administrative Rule,” explained Chair Tony Borge.

“As advocates for Hawaii small business, I believe that using this process is a tremendous opportunity for the SBRRB to assist business owners,” said DBEDT Director Luis P. Salaveria.

Business owners need to go to the SBRRB website, fill in the Regulatory Review Card, and submit. The submission will be reviewed to determine how the SBRRB may be able to assist business owners.

The Regulatory Review Card can be found at: dbedt.hawaii.gov/sbrrb/regulation-review-card

About the Small Business Regulatory Review Board:

The SBRRB was established on July 1, 1998, with the passage of the Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Act. The responsibilities of the SBRRB include:

  1. Commentary on small business impact statements to the rule-drafting departments;
  2. Identification and commentary on business impact of existing administrative rules;
  3. Recommendations to the Governor’s Office, Departments or the Legislature regarding the need for an administrative rule or legislative change;
  4. Recommendations to the Mayors or County Councils regarding County rules; and
  5. Review of small business petitions and complaints on business impact.

Statutorily, the SBRRB is comprised of nine members – eight current or former owners or officers of businesses from across the state, and the Director of DBEDT or the Director’s designated representative, who serves as an “ex officio” board member. Aside from DBEDT’s Director, the board members, with the advice and consent of the Senate, are appointed by the Governor. Three members are appointed from a list of nominees submitted by the President of the Senate, three members are appointed from a list of nominees submitted by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and two members are appointed by the Governor.

The appointments reflect a representation of a variety of businesses in the state with no more than two members from the same type of business and at least one representative from each county. In addition, nominations are solicited from small business organizations, state and county chambers of commerce and other interested business organizations.
