Compliance Code

This statutory code of practice for regulators was published by the Better Regulation Executive in December 2007.

The code supports the Government’s better regulation agenda and is based on the recommendations in the Hampton Report. Its purpose is to promote efficient and effective approaches to regulatory inspection and enforcement which improve regulatory outcomes without imposing unnecessary burdens on business, the Third Sector and other regulated entities.

In discharging their responsibilities under the Safety of Sports Grounds Act 1975 and Fire Safety and Safety of Places of Sport Act 1987 local authorities must take into account the code’s provisions and give them due weight in developing their policies or principles or in setting standards or giving guidance.
