The federal government is streamlining regulations for aged-care homes.

Aged Care Minister Sussan Ley said a bill she introduced to parliament on Wednesday would remove “an unnecessary and administratively burdensome” form from the process of transferring a person from one facility to another.

However the government could still veto a transfer to ensure a high standard of quality care, she said.

The bill also cuts the reporting requirements on proposed new facilities during the building period which typically takes several years.
