Draft guidance on a new duty in the SBEE Bill, for ministers to include review provisions in secondary legislation that regulates business.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



The Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill (SBEE) will create a new duty on ministers. This duty will be to include a statutory review provision in new secondary legislation that has a regulatory effect on business, unless it is not appropriate to do so.

This draft statutory guidance explains what departments need to consider in deciding whether a review provision is appropriate. It is being published to help understanding of the new duty in the bill.
