The Regulators’ Code came into statutory effect on 6 April 2014 under the
Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006, replacing the Regulators’ Compliance
Code. It provides a clear, flexible and principle-based framework for how regulators should engage with those they regulate and the information regulators should provide.
Businesses should be able to understand what they need to do to meet the rules, where they can get help and how they can provide feedback to the regulators.
This guidance shows how the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) meets the 6 standards of the code to make sure we’re open and fair with those we regulate.
