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 how we might improve our effectiveness or make our processes more efficient.

This is our Simplification Plan 2016-17. It sets out our key commitments for the coming year to improve how we regulate and also describes our new duties around assessing and reporting burdens on business, in the Enterprise Bill (currently before Parliament).
