Enforcement policy statement

This Enforcement Policy Statement (EPS) is in accordance with the Regulators’ Compliance Code and the regulatory principles required under the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006.

It sets out the general principles and approach which HSE and local authorities are expected to follow. All local authority and HSE staff who take enforcement decisions are required to follow HSE’s Enforcement Policy Statement. In general, those staff will be inspectors, so this policy refers to inspectors for simplicity.
