Following on from a commitment in the government’s productivity plan, departments and their associated regulators are publishing documents showing how their approach to regulation supports innovation.

The documents set out:

  • how the UK regulatory framework is working to support innovation and disruptive business models
  • how regulators are using innovation to deliver their own work more effectively

The documents complement the government’s approach to develop a modern Industrial Strategy for Britain.
