Summary of results

  1. A Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) was produced.

Departmental Assessment Status: Whilst the conclusions have been very useful in producing a RIA, as well as examples of best practice which the industry can follow, its specific nature precludes the interest of a wider audience.
