The historical development of the enforcement pyramid model in an Australian corporate regulatory context is discussed in this paper. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of the civil penalty regime in achieving the relevant regulatory objectives. The current Australian corporate regulatory framework is analysed with reference to world's best practice and public and private interest theories to both identify problems in that framework and suggest law reforms. The Australian experience may provide an informed basis for reforming New Zealand's corporate regulatory laws particularly in relation to the civil penalty regime. Reference is made to the New Zealand Law Commission's recent Issues Paper on Civil Pecuniary Penalties.
