BIS seventh statement of new regulation: regulations covering January to June 2014

This publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Informs businesses and interested stakeholders of Department for Business regulations that come into force between January and June 2014.


BIS publishes a statement of new regulation every 6 months. These statements list the new domestic regulations we intend to introduce in that 6 month period that fall in scope of the ‘one in one out’ rule.

The government has committed to leave office having cut the overall burden of red tape. One of the ways this is implemented is through the ‘one-in, two-out’ rule, which means any new regulation imposing costs on business is being off-set by deregulation of an equivalent amount.
