Subsection (2) specifies that unnecessary burdens need not be removed where to do so would be impracticable or disproportionate.

44.Subsection (3) requires LBRO to secure that it exercises its functions in a way that is transparent, accountable, proportionate, and consistent, and that it targets its activities only at cases where action is needed. These are the Better Regulation Commission’s Principles of Good Regulation.
