This guide contains information on the regulations which the Social Security Advisory Committee has taken on formal referral. The Statutory Instruments can be obtained from the TSO Bookshop.
The Committee may ask for formal referral on proposals for regulations which:
- make possibly contentious changes to established policy and/or practice
- adversely affects entitlement to benefit for particular groups or individuals
In practice the committee only asks for a small minority of proposals to be formally referred.
