The Department introduced four regulations between 1 February 2012 and 31 May 2012. The regulations, SI numbers and the dates they came into force are:

The Storage of Carbon Dioxide (Inspections etc.) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/461, 23 February 2012)

The Energy Act 2011 (Commencement No 1 and Saving) Order 2012 (SI 2012/873, 20 March 2012)

The Feed-in Tariffs (Specified Maximum Capacity and Functions) (Amendment) Order 2012 (SI 2012/671, I April 2012)

The Offshore (Oil and Gas) Installation and Pipeline Abandonment Fees Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/949, 20 April 2012).

The cost to the public purse would include staffing and other related costs associated with the development of the policy, drafting of the regulations and parliamentary scrutiny. However, this information could be provided only at disproportionate cost due to the amount of analysis required.
