Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Please can you provide the following pieces of information in electronic form for the period 1st January 2010 to 16th August 2015:

• An itemised annual budget for the Regulatory Policy Committee and secretariat
• Records of meetings of Committee members and secretariat with external stakeholder visitors
• Documents detailing or relating to the RPC’s conflict of interest policy
• Documents detailing or relating to the methodology for determining RAG ratings given to impact assessments

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Devlin

Regulatory Policy Committee - Enquiries, Regulatory Policy Committee

Thanks for your email.

Please note that the Freedom of Information Act does not currently apply to the Regulatory Policy Committee. We do, however, endeavour to respond within the spirit of any requests.

Details of our budget and spend will be published in our business plan. This will be published in due course - it would usually reflect the financial year, but as a result of the election this has not been possible this year.

Minutes of Committee meetings, including where external guests have been invited, can be found on our website (links towards the bottom of this page )

Our conflict of interest policy, and list of registered interests, can be found here -

Guidance on how we consider submissions can be found here and here

I hope this helps.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. If there is anything in particular that you are interested in I'm happy to talk about our work.
