How the Red Tape Challenge works

1. We publish

Every few weeks we publish online the regulations affecting you on a rolling thematic basis. Click here to find out more about the Red Tape Challenge.

2. You respond

You tell us which regulations are working, which are not, what should be scrapped, what should be simplified, and what can be done differently.

3. We act

Based on your feedback, we will start getting rid of unnecessary red tape – freeing up business and society from the burden of excessive regulation.
