The draft Regulations were previously consulted on in 2014. Regrettably, it was not possible to progress the Regulations. Given the passage of time since the Regulations were last consulted on, it is considered that a further consultation exercise is necessary to be able to progress the Regulations.
In order to inform responses, a summary of the consultation feedback received in 2014 is provided and the Department’s proposed actions, including where changes have been made to the draft Regulations as a result. The Department is also seeking views on some additional issues that have arisen since the original consultation took place.
