How the Red Tape Challenge worked

1. We published

Every few weeks we published online the regulations affecting you on a rolling thematic basis. Find out more about the Red Tape Challenge

2. You responded

You told us which regulations were working, which were not, what should be scrapped, what should be simplified, and what could be done differently.

3. We acted

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