Red Tape Challenge proposals published for the Water and Marine theme

The Red Tape Challenge (RTC) is a Cabinet Office lead initiative to ensure that regulations are fit for purpose in the 21st century.  The Water and Marine group of regulations is the second Defra led theme.  It covers drinking water quality, flood management, inland waterways, marine conservation and fisheries.  Following consultation and review, Defra’s proposals for the Water element of the theme, which include scrapping or improving 63% of the regulations, have been published.  A paper on the Marine regulations will be published shortly.  Further details and the report can be downloaded form the following link.
