In December, the Environment Agency wrote to inform us of the completion of the regulatory impact assessment carried out by DEFRA to determine the environmental benefits of the updated guidance and the costs associated with its implementation.The outcome of the regulatory impact assessment was positive, so they are now awaiting public consultation, which is the next phase of the process. They are unsure of the timeframe for the consultation process as this depends on several factors, such as DEFRA resourcing and other ministerial business, which is hard to predict. However, it is expected to happen at some point this year, and the agency will send an update when more information is available. Following the consultation, they will analyse the responses and then work towards producing the final draft for publication. Further information will be released on the next step as the process progresses.
