The Government has today published its third statement of new regulation (SNR3).

The Government has today published its third statement of new regulation (SNR3).

SNR3 provides an overview of regulations intended to be implemented by Government departments between January and June 2012 and reports on the  application of the One-in, One-out (OIOO) rule to new domestic regulation.

MoJ continues to work to support the Government’s objective to reduce regulation, and will not be introducing any regulatory measures during the SNR3 period and therefore has no measures for inclusion in SNR3. This means, we also have no regulatory measures within the scope of OIOO that are planned to be brought into force within the period covered by SNR3.

The Ministry’s opening OIOO balance at 31 December 2011 is zero. The closing balance at the end of June 2012 is expected to be zero and the overall aggregate overview (SNR1, SNR2, and SNR3) is zero.

The Better Regulation Executive at the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, who lead on the better regulation agenda across Government, have published a cross-Whitehall narrative and a summary of the OIOO position by department.
