Unconventional oil and gas policy: BRIA

Business and regulatory impact assessment (BRIA) of our policy position on development of onshore unconventional oil and gas (UOG).

Legal Aid Impact Test

There is always the potential for the legality of a decision made by the Scottish Government to be challenged. The Scottish Legal Aid Board have advised that any judicial review of Scottish Ministers' decisions in respect of their finalised unconventional oil and gas policy in due course may attract Legal Aid funding but it is unlikely to have a major impact on the Fund unless it is particularly long-running or complex.
