Consultation on Simplification Plan 2015-16

Publication date

Policy areas

Finding ways to regulate better is an essential part of what we do. We have a legal duty to keep our activities under review and to publish an annual Simplification Plan, explaining what we intend to do to reduce or remove regulatory requirements which have become burdensome. We interpret this duty widely, to include ideas for how we might improve our effectiveness or make our processes more efficient. This letter opens public consultation, to gather proposals for our Simplification Plan 2015-16.

Our initiatives to reduce burdens and improve our processes should support delivery of the consumer outcomes in our Strategy. The Simplification Plan should also help to ensure that the activities in our Forward Work Programme remain consistent with best regulatory practice.

Anything included in the Plan should help to show how we follow the principles of Better Regulation, so we would like to hear about actions that you think could help us to be more proportionate, accountable, consistent or transparent, or that could better target our work where we can make most difference.

The consultation closes on Tuesday 17 March.
