Better regulation framework

Guide for government officials covering all aspects of the better regulation framework.



This guidance is intended for government officials. If you are developing or implementing policies that will regulate or deregulate business or civil society organisations, this document contains the guidance you will need to comply with the regulatory framework. It replaces the ‘Better regulation framework manual’, which may be referenced in other documents.

You should also read the guidance on how to transpose EU Directives into UK law.

This is interim guidance. We will update the framework once the business impact target (BIT) has been set for this Parliament and the independent verification body appointed.
