Find out about our research 

We believe that regulation should be used only when it is the most effective means of protecting the public. Five years ago we asked, ‘what evidence is there that regulation works?’ We found little research had been done and so we began working with researchers and regulators to develop evidence-based regulation.

Our current interests in regulatory research include:

  • Researching the influence regulators have on the behaviour of people on their register
  • Understanding the inter-connection between workplaces and people’s behaviour
  • Promoting understanding of different approaches to regulation internationally
  • Developing a library of knowledge about regulation.
