Regulatory Impact Assessment

Government departments proposing legislation affecting businesses, charities or voluntary bodies prepare a Regulatory Impact Assessment which assesses the benefits and burdens. They are kept for Members by the libraries of the House of Commons and the House of Lords and are often available on the website of the relevant government department.
