§ Lord Lipsey
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What process of regulatory impact anlaysis is carried out before changes are made in building regulations. [HL4567]
§ Lord Rooker
Before any changes are made to the building regulations in England and Wales, or their supporting approved documents, consultation with outside bodies takes place. Part of the consultation package, which is publicly available, is a draft regulatory impact report, prepared by officials or by consultants working on their behalf. The views of consultees on this report are invited and the analysis revised in the light of these comments. The final regulatory impact analysis is made available when the regulations are laid before Parliament or the revised approved document published.
