The following table sets out the regulations which the Department introduced between 1 February and 31 May 2012.

In general, there was no identifiable cost to the public purse flowing from the introduction of these regulations with the following proviso.

In some cases, the Explanatory Memorandum to the regulations records that the impact on the public sector is "minimal" (see the Police/Complaints and Misconduct) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/1204) and the Police and Crime Panels (Nominations, Appointments and Notifications) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/1433)) or "negligible" (see the Police (Amendment No. 2) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/680)).

Similarly, in the case of the Immigration (Biometric Registration)(Amendment) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/594), it is expected that the overall cost to the public purse will be negligible when income from fees is taken into account (save for the cost of providing (free) biometric residence permits to certain categories of person such as refugees and persons with humanitarian protection).
