Plans to simplify information requests by Defra and the Defra network with “Smarter Data”

Opportunities and Benefits

Smarter Guidance and Data will help to save businesses time and money, while maintaining or improving the effectiveness of regulations. For example, we should be able to reduce the time needed for new businesses to find out about their obligations by at least 80%.Smarter Data

Reforms to information obligations will focus on the information that is really needed and used and work to remove duplication. Businesses and regulators alike will benefit from a more straightforward process.

This work coincides with public bodies moving web content to www.gov.uk. Most Defra agency guidance will be found here, in one place, in the same format. We are working with the Government’s Digital Service to improve customer experience as part of this move.

Full information can of course be found on the GOV.UK website.
