The contents must be a report on the performance of its functions during the preceding financial year. In particular, it will include a statement of the regulator’s accounts, and specify any direction that the regulator has been given by the Secretary of State during the preceding year under section 197. The regulator’s annual report shall include a general description of complaints made to it during the year about the performance of registered providers and of how those complaints have been dealt with. Having prepared the report, the regulator will send a copy of the report to the Secretary of State, who will then lay a copy before Parliament.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
