The Department has not repealed any regulatory measures between 1 February 2012 and 31 May 2012.

However, DECC is committed to reducing regulatory burdens on business. Work undertaken on the ‘Red Tape Challenge’, for example, has identified a number of areas where regulations could be repealed in future. Further information will be published later this summer.
