Almost all aspects of our daily lives are regulated - from the food we eat for breakfast, to our experiences at work and the daily experiences of our children – from processes for developing and building land, to the management of natural resources and the conduct of markets and commerce. Regulations are designed and administered by over 20 government departments, 78 local authorities and a large number of Crown entities, professional bodies and other organisations. How well regulations are designed and administered is vitally important to our quality of life and our economic competiveness. Events such as the leaky building crisis and the whey milk protein scare are reminders of how much we rely on effective regulatory frameworks and of the social and economic costs of regulatory failures.
