Resources for regulators
Practical tools and information for regulators
All BRDO's resources for regulators are available here. Many of the pages were originally created at the suggestion of the Welsh Government to help Welsh regulators. However, the resources draw on practical examples and diverse case studies from across the UK. The emphasis is firmly on giving practical assistance and providing tools to drive better delivery of local regulation.
A common approach to professional competency for regulators is being introduced in an ongoing project led by BRDO in partnership with the Regulatory Excellence Forum.
Local regulators huge spread and depth of knowledge and experience, combined with the experience of national regulators, and the businesses and groundbreaking research commissioned by BRDO.
Effective service planning requires reference to local needs and the national contex and adds greatest value when it is based on clear aims and objectives.
Better relationships between local authorities and their business communities are a solid foundation for enhanced protection and encouraging local economic growth.
Protection and growth go hand in hand, and BRDO encourages sharing best practice on risk based regulation such as successful initiatives to reduce sales of alcohol to children.
Local review and scrutiny are key elements of continuous service improvement.
