The UK government announced that it was going to review unnecessary legislation when it came to power in 2010.  In April 2011 the Red Tape Challenge website went live, inviting the public to comment on any areas where there were over burdensome or obsolete regulations.

 Because there have been many comments from businesses about enforcement, the consultation has now been extended to include Regulatory Enforcement.  The theme will run to mid-September. 

 Feedback is invited on the following:

  • How enforcement has placed an unnecessary burden on you or your business
  • Whether you have experienced overlap between different enforcement rganisations? If so how?
  • Your experiences of particularly overzealous enforcement that is beyond the remit of the regulation
  • Where you feel that you or your sector could manage compliance without intervention by enforcers
  • Where enforcement works well and is helpful.

 The MHRA has posted a link to the Red Tape Challenge website, and clearly is expecting to come within the scope of the review.

 Do you have thoughts on pharmaceutical legislation or the way in which is enforced by the MHRA?  Now is your chance to make them known: Red Tape Challenge website.
