About this site

We have recently made a number of changes to our site, to make it easier for you to find the information you need. This page sets out the changes and how to make best use of the site.

The Department for Business, Enterprise & Regulatory Reform covers a wide range of topics, probably more than you might have thought. The new website structure is designed to make this wide range accessible to you, so that you can more easily see all the ways in which we can help you. You might want to take advantage of this opportunity to have a browse around and see what is on offer. Our Site Index gives a good overview of everything we cover. It is also available on the top left of every page on the site.

At the top of every page on the site is our navigation bar. We have divided the main content of the site into nine themes. Each theme groups together related content, to make it easier to find all the relevant content. However, don't worry if you're not sure which theme to start with. We also have related links on the pages, which can signpost you to content in another theme that might be of interest.

If you have a good idea of what you are after, then you can use our search engine. Type the words you want to search for in the box in the top right hand corner. If your initial search does not give you the right answer, you can try the advanced search, or there is an extensive help section. It is available from the results page, or you can go to it now from here .

If you are looking for a specific document or publication we have produced, you can search our Publications Database. From there you can download our electronic publications or order copies of printed documents.

If you still can't find what you are looking for, you might want to contact us directly. If you have any comments about our re-designed website, please send us a feedback email.
