Published, 29 May 2018

This report investigates how information-based regulation (IRB) is used, as well as its effectiveness, in the areas of food, environment and energy.

Schemes that involve IRB use information to push for behavioural changes in order to achieve policy objectives and this report presents three cases as examples of IRB in the policy areas investigated. It also covers the many roles that regulators have in order to ensure compliance with regulations.
