The Office for Product Safety and Standards was created in January 2018 and takes forward the work of the previous Regulatory Delivery directorate, including its enforcement responsibilities. This report describes its enforcement activities in 2016-2017.
We are committed to an approach to delivering regulation that is proportionate, robust, transparent and accountable, meeting the expectations of the Regulators’ Code, for which we hold policy responsibility. We engage with a wide range of organisations that represent those we regulate, from trade associations to professional bodies. We also work with other organisations that have a close interest in the regulations we enforce.
