The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) monitors and collates cost information on regulations introduced through the Statement of New Regulation. The Statement of New Regulation is a Government-wide publication that lists regulatory and deregulatory measures and their expected impact on businesses.

DCMS has used the Red Tape Challenge process to review existing regulations, and in particular invite requests from stakeholders to amend or revoke regulations that impose unnecessary burdens on business.
