The Cabinet Office Interim Guidance for the Economic Regulated Sectors identifying considerations for industry on how they may be able to support resilience building.

In the response to the Pitt Review (Recommendation 53) the Government supported the aim of the recommendation that guidance should be issued to economic regulators to encourage resilience building by operators of critical infrastructure.

This document builds upon this initial guidance for regulators and outlines the 2010 state-of-play within these sectors. It highlights innovation and best practice among and between the utility sectors. Significant best practice has evolved since the floods in 2007.

The document is intended to allow best practice lessons to be learned among and between the utility sectors, allowing regulators and essential asset owners to benefit from considering alternative approaches to similar challenges.
