Consultation on proposals to review HSE's Approved Codes of Practice

Impact on business

26. It is Government policy to use an Impact Assessment (IA) to assess and understand the impact, both costs and benefits, of all new regulations. 

27. In line with Government guidance HSE will prepare proportionate IAs for the proposed withdrawal of any ACOPs before a final decision is made on each proposal.  For proposed revisions to ACOPs proportionate IAs will be prepared (if they are needed) prior to any consultations on the revised text of those ACOPs.
