Launch of Regulatory Delivery

New directorate created to simplify regulation for UK business.


The launch of Regulatory Delivery today combines policy expertise and practical experience to ensure that regulation is effectively delivered in ways that reduce burdens on business, save public money and properly protect citizens and communities.

This new BIS directorate brings together the Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO) and the National Measurement and Regulation Office (NMRO) to focus on regulation and enforcement.

Regulatory Delivery will work to ensure that the way regulation is enforced is proportionate and risk-based, delivering existing functions such as Primary Authority, legal metrology and hallmarking policy, technical regulation and enforcement work.
