Round up of the top 10 UK regulatory developments
In last year’s regulatory update, Emma Radmore looked at several key changes which had either already taken place in the UK, or were on the horizon. This year, the regulators have remained busy, but to some extent the year has been about consolidation of recently implemented measures, while planning for significant new laws. Many changes took effect in 2014, with others finalised and ready to take effect in 2016. And, of course, the cycle of regulatory change continues for 2017 and beyond. This year’s top 10 is a mixture of changes that took effect during the year; the impact of changes that were already in force; and a look ahead to priorities for 2016.
