This consultation ended on 14 November 2008
This consultation covers proposals to remove several legislative form filling requirements that apply to most businesses operating from a factory, office or shop in Great Britain.
We are considering two areas:
We are proposing to abolish the requirements because:
To achieve this we would repeal the notification and general register requirements of the Factories Act 1961 and the Offices, Shops and Railway Premises Act 1963.
We are confident that this proposal would result in no loss of current health and safety protection.
We are allowing 14 weeks for this consultation, rather than the usual 12, to compensate for the summer holiday period.
