Effective regulation is vital to protect consumers, society, health, the economy and the environment. At the same time there is a need to manage the cost of regulation – e.g. the cost of operating regulation and also the costs incurred by those regulated.

This training seminar is designed to help participants explore the idea of dynamic regulation. It will analyse how to approach regulation in a way that addresses current needs but that is also capable of adapting to future challenges.

In a fast-changing world, regulation needs to take a dynamic and evolutionary approach. The day’s topics will emphasise the implications for the work of those designing policy as well as that of regulators. The course reflects the latest thinking on regulatory best practice.

This highly interactive event will explore how this best practice can be applied to likely future challenges for those working in every aspect of the regulatory cycle, from policy development to regulatory enforcement.

Who is this course designed for?

The course will be useful for those from independent regulators, civil servants, local government officials as well as anyone from the private and voluntary sectors who is involved in influencing government policy on regulatory issues. The event is designed for people with a variety of levels of experience – from those new to regulation to those with extensive experience who are seeking some fresh insights.

How will you benefit from attending?

Those people involved in any of the stages of the regulatory cycle will benefit from attending this course, as it designed to explore the latest thinking about best practice in regulation, such as principles-based approaches, earned recognition, and better targeted enforcement. The day has a practical focus which means that any ideas or theories discussed will be placed firmly in the context of how to make them work in practice, meaning that you will return to your desk the next day better equipped to deliver successfully in your role.
