Consultation description

Good regulation is essential to successful business. The government strives to achieve the right regulatory balance between supporting excellent business practice and protecting workers, consumers and the environment.

The Reforming Regulation Initiative is an invitation to businesses and the public to help government ensure that regulation is sensible and proportionate. We’re particularly interested in the needs of small businesses.

Please let us know how we could improve the system of UK regulation by responding to this short consultation.

Please note that this is about improving the system rather than changing regulatory decisions about individual cases. If you want to challenge a decision about a case, you can get details of how to appeal from the relevant regulator’s website.

Regulations related to public safety in buildings have been excluded from the scope of this initiative as the government is delivering a separate programme of improving regulation in these areas.

The initiative does not cover the responsibilities of the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
