In June 2005, Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) was introduced by the Government to assess the likely effects of regulatory changes.
Since then, all Government Departments and offices have been required to conduct an RIA for primary legislation involving changes to regulations; on significant Statutory Instruments, and on proposals for EU Directives and significant EU regulations, when they are published by the European Commission.
An RIA must also be conducted by all Policy Review Groups where primary legislation or a significant regulatory change is being proposed.
