Welcome to the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform

The Department brings together functions from the former Department of Trade and Industry, including responsibilities for productivity, business relations, energy, competition and consumers, with the Better Regulation Executive (BRE), previously part of the Cabinet Office. (See also the Better Regulation website to submit ideas for reducing or simplifying regulation for the business, public and third sectors.)
