The Regulatory Review Group (RRG) was set up in December 2004 to examine the issue of regulation.
This independent group is made up of representatives from all of the main business organisations in Scotland. The Group's work involves identifying regulations that are causing business concern, formulating a strategic approach and investigating areas for review.
The RRG have adopted the five principles of Better Regulation (transparent, accountable, consistent, proportionate and targeted) and strive to build awareness of, and commitment to these principles.
The First Minister announced in June 2007 a re-invigoration of the Group under the Chairmanship of Professor Russel Griggs. The Group report annually, helping the Government in its work to improve the regulatory environment for business.
