DECG has regulations in both the Environment and Energy themes of the Red Tape Challenge and work is ongoing to review these. We expect announcements on the environment theme in the spring and on the energy theme in summer 2012. However, DECC has repealed 20 regulations since conducting its own review in 2010.
