The Cutting Red Tape review programme will deliver public scrutiny of existing regulations and the way they are enforced to drive improvements in the law and the way it is applied. Specifically the reviews will seek to remove unnecessary burdens on business whilst maintaining all necessary protections.

Each review will begin with a short evidence gathering phase, followed by identification of the main issues and the options for delivering improvements and then by the implementation of appropriate reforms.

The programme builds on the best of the previous Red Tape Challenge, Focus on Enforcement and Business Focus on Enforcement initiatives.
