Detail

The Farming Regulation Task Force’s report to Government on ways of reducing regulatory burdens on farmers and food processors, published on 17 May 2011, has recommended more than 200 ways of reducing unnecessary “red tape”.

This report is in two parts:

  • how we establish a new regulatory culture, primarily (but not solely), in Defra, its agencies and delivery partners;
  • specific recommendations for change.
