Milk and Healthy Snack Scheme (Scotland) Regulations 2021: business and regulatory impact assessment

The Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment (BRIA) was conducted in relation to the Milk and Healthy Snack Scheme (Scotland) Regulations 2021 where it will replace the UK Nursery Milk Scheme with the Scottish Milk and Healthy Snack Scheme for the purposes of childcare providers in Scotland only.

Test Run of Business Forms

Each local authority may have a different approach to a registration process based on their systems but Scottish Government envisage the information required to be the same such as:

  • Seeking clarity if the setting would like to take part in the new Scheme;
  • Confirming the number of children in their setting to establish how much funding that setting requires;
  • Account details to allow for payment;
  • A response to be issued by the setting to the local authority either in writing by returning a single form, sending an email to a local authority mailbox or an online platform set up by the local authority;

Stakeholders have indicated that the information required for a registration process seems reasonable and essential in order to calculate payments.
