Regulation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

This white paper sets out plans to transform the UK’s regulatory system to support innovation while protecting citizens and the environment.

The measures include:

  • a new Regulatory Horizon Council to advise government on rules and regulations that may need to change to keep pace with technology
  • a digital Regulation Navigator to help businesses find their way through the regulatory landscape and bring their ideas to market
  • a review of the Regulators’ Pioneer Fund, which backs projects that are testing new technology in partnership with the regulators in a safe but innovative environment
  • a partnership with the World Economic Forum to shape global rules on innovative products and services
