The Department works with interested parties, often through formal public consultation and the preparation of an impact assessment, to ensure that guidance is clear, effective and does not impose unnecessary regulatory burdens. Where guidance is produced under statute, the Department follows the relevant statutory provisions. The Department does not hold information on the number of officials involved in the production of such guidance.
