Housing and Regeneration Act 2008

Section 118 - De-registration: compulsory

266.Subsection (1) gives the regulator the power to remove a body from the register, if it thinks that the body-

  • is no longer eligible (as provided for in sections 112 and 113)

  • has ceased to carry out activities, or

  • has ceased to exist.

267.Subsection (2) requires the regulator in the cases of subsection (1)(a) or (b) to take all reasonable steps to give the body it proposes to de-register 14 days’ notice of its action, and to consider any representations that the body may make during that period.

268.Subsection (3) requires the regulator to take all reasonable steps to inform a body that it has been deregistered on the grounds that it is no longer eligible for registration or has ceased to carry out activities. This will ensure that the body knows it no longer has to comply with regulation, though will still be required by section 172 to seek disposal consent (see section 186).

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.
