We are consulting

We are seeking views on draft good practice guidance developed as part of our work to support regulatory reform. The guides are aimed at supporting the regulators to use their new powers effectively and ensure public protection remains a key consideration. The deadline for responding is 15 April 2024.

Regulators

We have now published the evidence matrix and guidance for regulations for our EDI standard (Standard 3 of the Standards of Good Regulation). The evidence matrix describes four outcomes relating to the regulators’ work in EDI, each one is broken down into a number of indicators. The outcomes and indicators show our expectations of regulators for the next three years. This work represents a shift in our focus in our assessments against our EDI Standard – from process to demonstrating impact. The matrix and supporting guidance will also help regulators understand what we expect them to do to meet the Standard. We will begin assessing regulators against the new evidence matrix at the end of their 2023/24 review periods.
