Department of Health regulations: impact on business

The final report on an audit of DH regulations and their impact on business.

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



This report provides an overview of all the regulations for which DH has responsibility that are thought to affect business. The audit identifies regulations that could be scrapped or improved to reduce the regulatory burden placed on business and other organisations. The audit also aims to reduce the number and scope of DH regulations.

The department will use the government’s Red Tape Challenge process to agree appropriate regulations to scrap or improve.
