Regulatory Roundup Q1 2020

Published on 30 April 2020

Welcome to the Spring edition of the Regulatory Roundup, which aims to pull together the key developments across regulatory regimes – and help you to navigate the maze.

With the world grappling with COVID-19, the UK's regulators have been developing their guidance and expectations for businesses in response to this pandemic. While this has caused a significant shift in the regulatory landscape, there are several other key regulatory developments you need to be aware of. So, in response to client requests, this roundup pulls together some of the key developments over the past few months from across the UK regulators to help you join the dots and successfully navigate the regulatory maze.

Some of the topics included in this edition are:

  • the SFO's guidance on corporate cooperation and compliance programme evaluation
  • changes to National Minimum Wage obligations
  • EU smarter food safety rules and eco-design regulations, and
  • the new task force set up to tackle waste crime.

I hope you enjoy reading this Roundup. Please do not hesitate to contact me, or your normal RPC contact, if you would like to discuss any of the topics highlighted or have any suggestions for areas you would like to see in future updates.
