How Defra uses new technologies to minimise burden on business

The Government’s plan to boost UK productivity requires Departments to publish an Innovation Plan by spring 2016. Defra’s Innovation Plan will provide assurance that our regulatory framework is working effectively to support innovation and disruptive business models – and that regulators are using innovation to deliver their own work more effectively, and to reduce burdens on business.
