The Enforcement Concordat launched jointly by central and local government in March 1998, encourages constructive relationships between regulators and the business community in enforcement matters by advocating precepts of openness, helpfulness, proportionality and consistency.

The Improving Regulation Unit issues reminders bi-annually to all Executive agencies and non-departmental public bodies to encourage them to fulfil their obligations to the principles of the Concordat towards improving the regulatory and enforcement environment for business in Scotland.

The regulatory sub group of the Small Business Consultative Group is also looking at enforcement by Scottish regulators as part of its general look at aspects of the regulatory environment.
