Section 30: Section 28(2) (a): “provision for review”

224.This section sets out the requirements for review provisions made under the new duty. These follow the standard template for review provisions used in some secondary legislation at present.

225.The Minister is required to carry out a review, and publish a report setting out the conclusions within five years of the legislation coming into force, and on a five year cycle thereafter (starting from the date of the publication of the most recent report). The report must contain an assessment of the extent to which the original objectives of the regulation have been achieved, whether they remain appropriate, and (if so) whether they could be achieved in a less burdensome way. For legislation that implements international or EU obligations, the report should also consider how the obligation is implemented in other countries or member states.
