Innovation in regulation

Plans showing how departments and their regulators are ensuring that their approach to regulation supports innovation.

Following on from a commitment in the government’s Productivity Plan, departments and their associated regulators are publishing documents showing how their approach to regulation supports innovation.

These documents set out how the UK regulatory framework is working effectively to support innovation and disruptive business models, and how regulators are using innovation to deliver their own work more effectively. They complement the government’s approach to develop a modern Industrial Strategy for Britain.
