37. Stakeholders from all affected businesses will be consulted on the proposed changes. Up to 12 businesses of varying size will be consulted and the results published in the Final BRIA. This process will help to establish:

  • The number of businesses and the sectors likely to be impacted by the change.
  • The likely cost or benefit to business.
