Creating the conditions for a business-led economic recovery means we need to do everything possible to remove all unnecessary burdens on business, whilst ensuring that important protections provided by regulators continue.
We know that ill thought out regulations cost businesses time and money. So we are tackling unnecessary and inappropriate regulations through the Red Tape Challenge. However sometimes, the regulation itself is fine – it is inconsistent or inappropriate enforcement that causes problems or could just be so much better which is why we are launching this initiative.
We also know that there are good examples of compliance and enforcement activity, where regulators work constructively with business, and we want to learn more about those so that we can build on them.
We want your help to identify where enforcement can be improved, reduced or done differently and to discover and celebrate where it works really well, so others can learn from it.
