When does new legislation come into force?

BIS have just published the Forward Regulatory Programme which is trying to make it easier for businesses to prepare for when regulations change.


For example two common commencement dates have been introduced; 6th April and 1st October when the majority of regulatory changes will come into effect. The Government aims to provide clear and straightforward guidance explaining any changes at least 12 weeks in advance, and businesses can keep up to date with new requirements and changes through http://www.businesslink.gov.uk/.

Be warned however that the dates could all change after the general election - especially if there is a change in government.
