The decision not to provide a Regulatory Impact Assessment is in accordance with the guidance "Better Policy Making: A Guide to Regulatory Impact Assessment" issued by the Cabinet Office. The draft Order varies the competence of the Scottish Parliament. The draft Order does not in itself have a direct or indirect impact (whether benefit or cost) on business, charities or the voluntary sector. It would not therefore have any regulatory impact.
