BIS is looking for businesses to feedback and share ideas on how regulation affects their ability to innovate or enter/create markets or products, and how regulators may need to respond and adapt to upcoming developments in different sectors, specifically:
- How legislation and enforcement frameworks could adapt to new technologies and disruptive models to encourage growth;
- How regulators could respond to technological change in their sectors;
- How regulators could make better use of new technologies to generate efficiency savings and reduce burdens on business.
As you may know, the Government's Productivity Plan included a commitment on the regulator community to publish a set of Innovation Plans by spring 2016. These plans would outline the ways in which regulation and enforcement networks are being adapted in response to rapidly changing technologies.
The survey will inform these Innovation Plans and is accessible via the following link:
The deadline for responses to the survey is Thursday 25th February 2016.
BIS really welcome your thoughts and feedback so if you have 5 minutes, please do take a look at the survey.
