The RPF enables a representative cross-section of retailers to talk to Government Departments and EU officials about regulations at an early stage in the process. It aims to help both retailers and policymakers by minimising the burdens on retail, looking for alternatives to regulations and making any regulations and enforcement as practical and sensible as possible. The RPF meets three times a year and, when required, has working groups to take an in-depth look at particular subjects.
There is also a Virtual RPF of UK retailers, retail trade associations and others with a professional interest in retailing who receive communications mainly by email and can join the RPF's working groups. To apply for membership of the Virtual RPF, please email the Retail Unit explaining your interest in the sector and supplying contact details, including job title, telephone number and postal address.
