Closed consultation: Business impact target, growth duty and Small Business Appeals Champion

Updated: Added link to categories of regulatory provisions to be excluded from the BIT.

We’re seeking your views on which regulators to bring within scope of the business impact target (BIT), growth duty and Small Business Appeals Champion. We’re also asking for feedback on draft statutory guidance to support the implementation of the growth duty and the Small Business Appeals Champion.

This consultation is relevant to regulators and businesses and members of civil society subject to regulation.

On 3 March 2016 the Secretary of State published his list of categories of regulatory provisions which will be excluded from the BIT. All other regulatory provisions coming into force or ending during this Parliament will be treated as qualifying regulatory provisions and will count against the target.
