Alongside the consultation on the 30 hour free childcare entitlement, the Better Regulation Executive (BRE) will be publishing a call for evidence on the impact of existing regulation on early years providers.

This Cutting Red Tape Review is aimed primarily at childcare providers and aims to identify what burdens exist in the current system and what can be done to limit unnecessary regulations and requirements.

The scope covers the activity of national regulators and local authorities in relation to the regulation of early years providers, including activity not designed specifically for the early years sector but where there is evidence of significant impact on providers.
