What are the policy objectives and the intended effects?
"Benefits of implementing a robust compliance and enforcement regime include:
a) cost savings in the form of reduced consumer energy bills, CO2 emissions savings and other environmental benefits;
b) delivery of the 2007 energy white paper commitments on raising product energy efficiency standards and stimulating global competition;
c) contribution towards the UK's 80% CO2 reduction targets; and
d) creating a level playing field for UK business. Failure to implement an effective compliance and enforcement regime could also result in significant EU fines and reputational damage for the UK".
