Review of non-HE regulatory landscape and its impact on HEIs

The BIS White Paper, Putting Students at the Heart of the System, tasked the Higher Education Better Regulation Group (HEBRG) with delivering a review of the current non-HE regulatory landscape and its impact on higher education institutions. This report was delivered to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills in November 2011. 

The report is based on the research undertaken on behalf of HEBRG by Capita Consulting. 

It provides information on the impact on higher education institutions of a wide range of regulatory requirements, including health and safety, planning, equal opportunities, Freedom of Information, procurement and employment law. The report makes 16 prioritised recommendations across six areas, identifying potential areas for deregulation while safeguarding students and taxpayers.
