The Department of Health’s final response to the Red Tape Challenge is published today. The department’s draft response to the comments it received was included in its consultation on changes to the regulations for controlled drugs in the community.
The Red Tape Challenge is a public review of all domestic secondary regulations affecting business, civil society organisations or citizens in England. The 2006 regulations were available on the Cabinet Office’s Red Tape Challenge website between 8 March and 12 April 2012 and invited comments from citizens, businesses and third sector bodies.
The 2006 Regulations were part of the Medicines Theme scrutinised under the Red Tape Challenge.
