Tools and guidance for good practice environmental regulation
This programme develops and delivers, in partnership with the three UK environment agencies, research projects providing tools, guidance and output across the wide range of topics covered by environmental regulators.
The outputs from the programme enable environmental regulators to have good practice tools and guidance at their fingertips. This supports the transition to a modern regulatory approach of working with industry to achieve compliance and fit for purpose levels of intervention.
