Detail

The fourth statement of new regulation is a forward look of all regulations in scope of government’s ‘one-in, one-out’ regime (including measures which are deregulatory) that are scheduled to come into force between 1 July and 31 December 2012.

This is published every 6 months to give businesses an indication of when regulations affecting them will be coming into effect.

The headline figures show that the measures we are introducing this year will reduce burdens on businesses by an estimated £0.3 million per year.

The statement of new regulation, combined with other measures that form part of the government’s strategy for reducing regulation, is designed to reduce Whitehall’s tendency to regulate and give businesses clarity about all new regulations being introduced. It provides an overview of the net costs and benefits to business and civil society organisations. The statement is published every 6 months to give businesses an indication of when regulations affecting them will be coming into effect.
