The Better Regulation Executive: making regulation work for everyone
The Better Regulation Executive works across government to reduce and remove unnecessary regulation for the public, private and voluntary sectors.
The Government has announced the appointment of Peter Rogers - Chief Executive of Westminster City Council - to lead an independent review of legislation enforced by local authorities. The review will include over 60 policy areas with the aim to produce a more joined up approach to regulatory inspection and enforcement.
Lord Davidson QC has published his final report on the implementation of European legislation in the UK.
A review of the penalties for regulatory non-compliance lead by Professor Richard Macrory has published its final report.
The Legislative & Regulatory Reform Act received Royal Assent on 8 November 2006. It aims to make it quicker and easier to tackle unnecessary or over-complicated regulation and help bring about a risk-based approach to regulation.
