The government has published its seventh ‘Statement of New Regulation’, listing regulations scheduled to come into force between 1 January and 30 June 2014.

As part of the government’s strategy for reducing the burden of regulation on business, we operate operates a ‘one-in, two-out’ rule to manage the flow of regulation.

Where policymakers introduce a new regulation, and where there is a cost to business or voluntary organisations, when complying with that regulation, departments have to remove or modify existing regulation(s) to the value of two pounds of savings for every pound of cost imposed.

Twice a year Defra publishes its forward look of:

  • new UK and EU business regulations that will come into force in the next 6 months
  • existing regulations that will be removed or modified in the next 6 months
