Since July 2007 the Department has reviewed 20 specific pieces of regulations covering Building Regulations, Fire, Housing, Local Government and Planning. We are also putting in place arrangements for the timely review of our Bills and Acts in line with "Post Legislative Scrutiny: the Government's Approach" published in May 2008. The new impact assessment process introduced in May 2007, also places increased emphasis on the post-implementation review of our policies.
