The Department for Communities and Local Government’s third statement of new regulation looked at all regulations in scope of the government’s ‘one-in, one-out’ regime (including measures which are deregulatory) that came into force between 1 January and 30 June 2012. This update provides more detail on the progress of each measure that was included in the third statement of new regulation.

The statement of new regulation, combined with other measures that form part of the government’s strategy for reducing regulation, is designed to reduce Whitehall’s tendency to regulate and give businesses clarity about all new regulations being introduced. It provides an overview of the net costs and benefits to business and civil society organisations. The statement is published every 6 months to give businesses an indication of when regulations affecting them will be coming into effect.
