Better Business Regulation

Better Business Regulation Derbyshire County Council Trading Standards Service is a founder member of the D2N2 Local Economic Partnership 'Better Business Regulation' partnership.

Supported by all local authorities within the Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire region together with national agencies, the Better Business Regulation programme is designed to improve the delivery of 'regulation' as it impacts on local businesses and therefore reduce the cost of compliance.

The key objectives of the programme are to develop a new relationship between businesses and regulatory services through:

  • Seeking to reduce the regulatory burden on businesses
  • Promotion of two way communication between businesses and regulatory services
  • Improving the business perception of regulators
  • Supporting regulators to find the right balance between encouragement, education and enforcement
  • Developing a joint offer of support from regulatory services to businesses
  • Building trust between regulators and businesses
  • Advising government how to do things better for both businesses and regulators

  • Animal Welfare
  • Employment
  • Environmental Health
