Our Regulatory Work Programme

Office for Statistics Regulation: Regulatory Work Programme 2017/18

This document sets out our priorities for our 2017/18 Regulatory Work Programme, and can be read together with our Business Plan which sets out our broader strategy. This work programme focuses only on our regulatory activity. Other key projects in 2017/18 – for example, delivering the refreshed Code of Practice for Official Statistics, are set out in the Business Plan.

This work programme has been finalized following consideration of all responses to ourĀ consultation on priorities in March 2017. Thank you very much to everyone who took time to contact us. As communicated at the time of the consultation, we have not fully committed our resources for 2017/18 from the start of the year. We have allowed scope to take on new work in-year to respond to emerging issues. Intelligence gathered from the consultation exercise, and from ongoing engagement, will continue to inform our planning.

As we work through this year we would welcome at any time any thoughts you may have on topics you think are important.
