BIS statement of new regulation

This series brings together all documents relating to BIS statement of new regulation.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Background

The government has committed to leave office having cut the overall burden of red tape. This commitment is being implemented through:

  • the ‘one-in, two-out’ rule, which means any new regulation imposing costs on business is being off-set by deregulation of an equivalent amount
  • the ‘Red Tape Challenge’, which is taking a fundamental look at all regulations currently on the statute books
  • the moratorium on new regulations for micro-businesses and start-ups

We are committed to improving BIS regulation and policies. We aim, where appropriate, for a light touch regulatory environment, with fewer burdens on business, whilst protecting the public, consumers and employees.

BIS, along with all other government departments, must publish a statement of new regulation (SONR) every 6 months. These statements list the new domestic regulations we intend to introduce in that 6 month period that fall in scope of the ‘one in one out’ rule.

Regulations coming info force during the period of a statement should either reduce costs or place no new costs on business.
