CD279 – Proposed HSE Innovation Plan

This consultation invites views on HSE’s proposed Innovation Plan. 

The government, as part of its productivity plan, has asked all departments to work with their regulators to publish an Innovation Plan by March 2016.  The aim of the plan is to find out whether the UK regulatory framework is set up to support innovation and disruptive business models.  Regulators have been asked to consider three specific issues:

  • How legislation and enforcement frameworks could adapt to new technologies and disruptive business models to encourage growth
  • An assessment of how new technology is likely to shape the sectors being regulated
  • Actions for how regulators could better utilise new technologies to generate efficiency savings and reduce burdens on business

Consultation began on 11 January 2016 and closes on 31 January 2016.
