Regulations - draft

Regulations – draft

The Department consulted in February 2007 on its proposed approach in areas where secondary legislation will be made as part of our implementation of the Companies Act 2006. The draft regulations and orders in the tables below have been prepared in the light of responses to that consultation.

The tables below include links to draft Impact Assessments. (We have not drafted Impact Assessments where the instrument would have no impact, or only a negligible impact, on costs or savings for business, charities or voluntary bodies).

Draft SIs for Consultation

The Statutory Instruments listed in the following table are currently open to public consultation. The closing dates for the consultation are listed alongside each SI.
