2 February 2022
In the last five years, the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy have undertaken the following Post Implementation Reviews (PIR) on primary and secondary legislation.
- An individual PIR can cover several pieces of legislation within the same review.
- Primary PIRs tend to refer to an evaluation of specific clauses within an Act, and not a review of the full Act.
- This information is only held for internal administrative reasons and may not be exhaustive, for example, due to machinery of government changes to departmental structure in the past decade.
