Fees charged for inspection and obtaining of copies of statutory instruments in accordance with the Statutory Instruments Act 90% of requests will be completed within five business days. This standard became effective as of September 2006 and is still in use. 100% of requests received were completed within five business days, with most requests completed within one day of receipt. The consultation process for the revision of external fees started in September 2012. Initial discussions took place with the Department of Justice and internal stakeholders. It is expected that a full review will be completed by the end of fiscal year 2013‑14. Delays are mainly due to increased workload and reduced capacity.
