HM Treasury’s Green Book guidance applies to the appraisal of all proposals that require use of public resources or assessment of public value. The Green Book also applies to the appraisal of value in Regulatory Impact Assessments.

BEIS provides specific guidance for Regulatory Impact Assessments, which are mandatory for any measure that has a significant regulatory impact on business and civil society organisations.
